To celebrate World Book Day (March 6), The Mill Primary Academy in Ifield opened its doors to a multitude of Wallies and Harrys, as well as Anne of Green Gables, Willy Wonka, Little Red Riding Hood and many other story book characters.

The teachers and children were entertained by the author M P Robertson during assembly as he proved to everyone that dragons are in fact real!

Shrieks echoed through the school hall when books began to roar and still pictures came to life.

Year 2 and Year 3 worked with the author throughout the day and became experts in drawing dragons by the end of their sessions.
