Books were brought to life for pupils at Tydd St Mary Primary School thanks to a special guest.

Editor of the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian Jeremy Ransome swapped writing for reading and visited the school to see some of the pupils’ favourite stories.

It wasn’t just the pupils getting into character, staff also dressed up and gathered to listen to the stories.

A variety of tales were heard, from Stick Man by Julia Donaldson for the reception class, Hairy Maclary by Dame Lynley Dodd for year groups one and two, Janet Ahlberg’s Burglar Bill for year groups three and four and a J.K Rowling adventure for year groups five and six.

Jeremy said: “It was a lovely day.

“All of the children were well behaved and interested in the stories. Some of the younger ones were animated and joined in with the story telling which really brought the tales to life.”

Jeremy said his favourite outfit was a staff member dressed as an Oompa Loompa from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
