Please see below for further homemade book character costumes. You can also look at http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-books-site/gallery/2015/feb/16/what-to-wear-on-world-book-day-2015 for more ideas!
Wear a black skirt with a white blouse tucked in. You could also have a little white maid-type apron and an umbrella for extra effect!
Wear a smart school uniform and circular glasses, and draw a lightening scar on forehead using face paint or make-up. You could have additional props if you like such as a black robe or cape, a wand, a Gryffindor coloured scarf or a toy owl.
Hermione Granger / Ron Weasley
Wear a smart school uniform with tie and carry a wand/character props, e.g. Hermione would carry a book.
Wear jeans and a white long sleeve top. You can paint red stripes on the top using fabric pens or fabric paint. Then, wear a white bobble hat, again using fabric pens or paint for the stripes. Finish the look with a pair of glasses.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Wear green leggings and a green t-shirt. Stuff pairs of green tights, and attach them down the back of a t-shirt and leggings, to represent caterpillar legs. Attach antennae onto a headband.
Oliver (or other Victorian pauper)
Wear short brown trousers, a brown shirt & brown cap.
Wear ‘cool’ boy’s clothes with a gadget or two! Pupils could make their own gadgets using boxes, kitchen foil etc.
Dress all in black and wear cat ears (could be attached to a hairband).
Mrs Hare and a P1 parent are in the early stages of setting up a link with Dunbar’s twinning town primary school in Lignieres, France.
The children sent us some pictures from their recent Christmas celebrations – note children in France don’t wear school uniform!
We hope to send them some information about Dunbar and exchange some Easter artwork later in the term.

Ruth, one of our former pupils, kindly spoke to the children at John Muir Campus about her experiences of using French in both Morocco and Dunbar’s twinning town in France.
She carried out a variety of jobs whilst in France including working in a dog parlour, café and senior citizen’s residential community to improve her language skills! We wish her well as she continues her language studies.
