NURSERY children and reception pupils from a school in Southsea dressed as their favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day.

Youngsters at St John’s College transformed into a range of colourful personalities including Angelina Ballerina, the Little Mermaid Ariel, Captain Hook, Cinderella, a car driver from Cars, Sleeping Beauty, Minnie Mouse and Fireman Sam.

The boys and girls also sat down to an updated version of the a classic children’s story – Jim and the Beanstalk by author Raymond Briggs – which they used as inspiration to make glasses, wigs and teeth for a performance to Year 2 pupils last week.

Tilde Fjell, four, said: ‘I dressed as Cinderella because I love the fairy Godmother.’
