Spider-man, Batman and The Hulk were just some of the characters spotted at schools in Hemsworth this week –but it wasn’t for the filming of the latest blockbuster movie.
It was the children at St Helen’s CE Primary School and West End Academy, both in Hemsworth, celebrating World Book Day dressed as their favourite characters.
Youngsters at West End Academy enjoyed a week full of reading activities including torchlit spooky stories last Tuesday night before have a spooky themed fancy-dress day on Thursday.
Karen Shaw, the school’s office manager, said: “The children all absolutely loved it.
“It was great. We try and encourage the children to read as much as we can.”
