In pictures: Book week at St Piran's

Michael Jackson, Sherlock Holmes and James Bond were out in force as St Piran's School held its annual book week.

Pupils from the school in Gringer Hill were treated to workshops and talks from illustrators and authors as they explored the power of books.

Yasmin Yazdi, an associate director for the Thriller Live west end show, also popped along to demonstrate to the students how Michael Jackson told stories through music.

Youngsters from each year then took to the stage at a special assembly to perform their pieces, which were set to Blame It On The Boogie, ABC and Thriller.

On the same day, the pupils were also asked to come in dressed as a book character they consider to be powerful.

Head of English Luissa Galloso said: "They all made a fantastic effort and really enjoyed the whole week.

"It was still linking with the theme of powerful characters and how they interpret the books.

"It was really great. We have been giving prizes for the efforts with the costumes."

Students were also able to submit stories they had written throughout the week to BBC Radio 2's 500 words competition.

The book week ran between Monday, February 3 and Friday, February 7.
