  • Tweet Us Your Best World Book Day Costume Pics And Win A Set Of 20 Books For Your School

Today is World Book Day. It’s a celebration of reading first and foremost, of course – but also a day that will see pupils up and down the land turning up to school dressed as their favourite literary characters.

We want to highlight some of today’s best-dressed participants, be they pupils or staff, in a Teachwire post tomorrow – so tweet your pictures of the most impressive, most comical (or possibly weirdest) costume worn at your school today to @teachwire, and who knows – you might make it into our World Book Day hall of fame.

To sweeten the deal, we’re giving away a pile of 20 KS1 and KS2 books to the school of that lucky tweeter who posts our favourite picture of the day. Entries close this evening at 11.59pm GMT (2nd March 2017), and the winner will be notified tomorrow.
