Heavy snowfall didn’t stop schoolchildren from Waltham and Redmile from enjoying World Book Day.

Although both schools had to be closed recently due to inclement weather and ensuring the safety of families and staff, teachers set the children a special challenge; to create a character from their favourite book out of snow.

Executive head teacher of both schools, Julie Hopkins, said: “Closing the schools was always a difficult decision to make, especially when there were so many exciting things planned for the children.

“The children and staff were very imaginative with their creations and have had some good discussions and laughs back in school.

“Our planned activities were rescheduled last week because many of the children had costumes that they were longing to wear, although I think the 2018 snowy World Book Day characters were their highlight.”
