Youngsters across Weston have been dressing up as their favourite characters for World Book Day, today (Thursday).

The annual celebration encourages children of all ages to celebrate stories.

Schools across Weston also encouraged pupils to dress up as their favourite characters and The Wizard Of Oz, Harry Potter and The Cat In The Hat were popular among the youngsters.

Historical figures such as Emily Davion were also honoured during the celebration.

St Martin's Primary School, in Worle, invited children and members of staff to dress in their favourite colour - as their theme was based on the popular book The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.

Pupils from Hutton Primary School, part of the Kaleidoscope MAT, did not dress up, however, parent volunteers came to the school and read to different classes.

Children painted pebbles of their favourite characters, some of which will be hidden around Weston for people to find.
