Archived News - World Book Day
Wee Willie Winkle ran through the town, upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown, and youngsters at Eaton Bray Lower School went to lessons in their pyjamas for World Book Day.
The school chose bedtime stories as their theme for the day and they all had great fun talking about their favourite book and why they enjoyed it so much.
They also wrote bedtime poems which headteacher Sue Hounslow said will be published as an anthology.

Just as the nursery rhyme says "four and twenty blackbirds" were prepared for lunch at Eaton Bray Lower School on Wednesday.
Not real ones of course ... but carefully sculptured birds made with icing by the school's kitchen staff.
To celebrate World Book Day, children and teachers dressed up in poetry and rhyme costumes. Little Bo Peep and her sheep proved very popular among the four to nine-year-olds, as was Humpty Dumpty. The children read and wrote poetry and sang nursery rhymes during the day.
Even the school site agent joined in - sporting a cow outfit complete with moon.
Head teacher Sue Hounslow said: It was a great day and hopefully it has increased their love for books."
