CHILDREN experienced the magic of reading at a school near Worcester as they were unleashed to explore their colourful new library for the very first time.

Pupils at Grimley and Holt Church of England Primary School dressed up as famous children's book characters on the day of the opening of the library, which was designed by parent Jane Amatt.

Professor Barrie Wade, who has written over 150 books, officially opened the new library on Wednesday, February 8, and ran workshops with the children on how to improve their story writing and encourage them with their reading.

Assistant headteacher Sarah Barrett said: "The children were inspired to dedicate their own writing to Barrie Wade and they loved hearing his stories. We have some great writers in our school."
