Mar 09 - Turtles, Twits and TrunchbullsThe highlight of Book Week for pupils at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School was on Friday 6th March when they came to school in fancy dress. There were many strange and wonderful outfits as pupils arrived dressed as characters from the Roald Dahl books they have been reading in school.
The children were greeted as they arrived at school by Oompa Loompas. These white suited, green haired, blue handed characters were their teachers who had also come to school in fancy dress.
There was a prize for the best fancy dress in each class and the winners were; Emily Morgan (age 10), Joshua Stafford (age 8), Josh Porter (age 10), Sam Creech (age 9), Amber Lewis (age 10) and Jacob Kelly (age 8).
Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis said “Book week has captured the imagination of pupils and this is demonstrated by the wonderful outfits that bear such close resemblance to the characters in the Roald Dahl books.”
