CHILDREN arrived at school dressed in their pyjamas to celebrate a love of reading.

Iceni Academy in Gloucester, Avenue, Colchester hosted a Get Colchester Reading day where children could read their favourite bedtime stories.

There was a number of book-related activities held in different classes throughout the school.

The children said being in pyjamas helped them feel more relaxed. The reading themed day allowed the children to be creative and apply their reading skills in the various activities and provided an opportunity to talk about books.

Get Colchester Reading is an event held at the end of every school year by Connected Learning Multi Academy

Trust and its five schools to continue to promote a love of reading.
