Best-loved book characters were brought to life at schools across Fenland.

Red Riding Hood, Harry Potter, Spiderman and other superheroes were spotted wandering around the halls of schools as part of World Book Day on Thursday.

Youngsters at Terrington St John Primary School also enjoyed African dance classes and had reading sessions and book swaps throughout the week.

Parents were invited to the school for reading classes, too.

A fashion show was held for children to show off some of their book-inspired costumes, with the best receiving a World Book Day voucher.

Walpole Highway Primary and the Anthony Curton Primary school in Walpole St Peter held various cultural activities and reading cafes, where parents were invited to read with their children privately or swap their books with other children.

Children were also encouraged to read privately, both during allocated school time and at home.

Glebelands Primary School in Chatteris put on a host of activities, including a book in a box design competition.

And early years children at the Burrowmoor Primary School in March also got into the spirit of the day.

The pictures in this two-page special capture some of the children who took part.
