Dressed in full witch regalia, Rebecca entertained the children with activities based on her witch-themed picture book, It’s Raining Bats and Frogs.

Children dressed as their favourite book characters while the staff impersonated much loved, and loathed, characters from Hogwarts.

Rebecca Colby said: “Visiting Oatlands Infants has been a fantastic way to celebrate World Book Day.

“I’ve loved being part of such a public celebration of children’s books”.

Headteacher, Mrs Robson, added: “It has been exciting for the children to meet an author and it brings to life the work we do in the classroom throughout the year.”
