PUPILS at a school in Thornton Heath dressed up as their favourite literary characters, from Noddy to the Hungry Caterpillar, to celebrate Adventure Week.

Children at David Livingstone Academy took part in a series of activities to coincide with World Book Week last Thursday.

They made bookworms, wrote poems and acted scenes from popular stories.

The school also received a visit from literary group West End in Schools, who gave pupils tips on how to become writers.

"Friday was the best day of all because they got to come dressed as a character from a book we had studied in class," said the school's English leader Rachael Bishop.

"Our celebration assembly showcased the costumes and prizes were awarded to the best dressed child in each class and for our photo challenge competition, where pupils were asked to get caught reading in the most exciting place.

"Our winner was a reception child who was found reading on top of a police motorbike."

On Friday afternoon Caboodle Arts Company put on a performance including well-known fairy tale characters.

Miss Bishop said: "It was an action packed week at David Livingstone and we had quite the adventure."
