Ashton primary school have fun reading books - in their pyjamas!

Pupils and staff at an Ashton primary school had some fun reading books in their pyjamas (as you do!) to celebrate the Book Trust's Pyjamarama festival. 

Children and staff who are still attending St Peter's CE Primary on Oxford Street went to school dressed in their PJs on Friday (May 1) and had lots of fun completing book related activities. 

Meanwhile, staff, pupils and even pets who are working from home shared images of themselves on Twitter reading in their pyjamas - even the head teacher got involved! Click here to see some of them

Deputy head teacher Chris Colvin told us: "It was a great day and a fantastic way to come together and share a love of reading!" 

Book Trust is the UK's largest children's reading charity, dedicated to getting children reading. 

Every year, it holds a 'Pyjamarama' festival where they invite schools and nurseries to sign up to join them for a pyjama-fuelled day of fun. This year it has been brought forward and most pupils and staff have joined in from home, celebrating bedtime stories and sharing stories with families across the country. 

This was the full line-up for the day:


With the majority of people now staying safe indoors, it’s important we use this time to stay safe, but to also stay positive and come together! We're going to share nothing but positive and uplifting stories from the people and businesses in our community in a dedicated 'We Are A Community!' section of our website here:
