Gaywood Primary School

When Harry met Elmer

The Gruffalo, Harry Potter and Elmer the Elephant all took part in World Book Day celebrations at Gaywood Primary.

Children at our school, which is a member of the West Norfolk Academies Trust, arrived in class on Thursday 7 March dressed as characters from the books of their year group’s chosen author.

Reception pupils were inspired by David McKee’s Elmer the Elephant, while Year 1 drew from the works of Julia Donaldson, creator of The Gruffalo as well as Room on the Room and a host of other popular favourites.

Year 3 children chose from Roald Dahl’s many classics, while Year 4 dressed as Cressida Cowell’s Viking hero Hiccup and his friends, Year 5 took their pick from the works of David Walliams, and Year 6’s author was Harry Potter creator JK Rowling.
