Celebrating World Book Day

The children at St Hugh's enjoyed a fantastic World Book Day celebration on Thursday 3rd March. Pupils were invited to come into school dressed as their favourite character, and it was great to see so many inventive costumes on display!

Years 6-8 enjoyed a creative writing workshop and Q&A with Kerry Drewery, a Lincolnshire-based author of Young Adult fiction, where they came up with their own detective stories. Also being detectives were the pre-prep, who went on a hunt around school to see how many Wallys they could find!

The teachers played detective too, keeping their eyes out for the most original costumes throughout the day and nominating their favourites. Congratulations to the winners and runners-up of this year's costume competition:
