To celebrate World Book Day on 4th March, Bridgnorth Endowed students were invited to ‘get crafty’ and bring their favourite fictional characters to life.
After receiving an assortment of highly creative and imaginative ideas, based on some terrific tales, judges finally revealed the results earlier this week.
Congratulations to Evie Power from Year 8 for scooping the top prize with her Coraline cloth doll and Mog the Cat soft toy, which she made by hand from a YouTube tutorial.
Coming in second, was Year 8 pupil, Sienna Turner, who also submitted two fantastic pieces – a Willy Wonka-themed chocolate cake and an Agatha Oddly scene in a jar.
Year 7’s Isabelle Wedgbury then took third place for her beautifully-made clay whale from the much-loved children’s book, ‘The Snail and the Whale’.
Special commendations were also given to Mia Campbell Spence, Sam Lewis, Charlotte Cotterill and Elliot Wilbury, for their inspired creations.
World Book Day has now been going for 26 years and, although 2021 was celebrated a little differently, the powerful and positive message about books and reading prevailed, even in lockdown.
Many thanks to everyone who took part.
