As part of a collaboration with Waterstones pupils chose a character – from any children’s book – and wrote about what would happen if the character came into their world. This theme is related to a book called Inkheart where one of the people in the book are able to make fictional characters come to life just by reading aloud, sometimes with unfortunate consequences.
Some of the Junior School children filmed themselves (using the green screen) talking about why they chose their character.
