Pupils at one of the borough’s primary schools were thrilled to turn their classrooms into pirate havens for World Book Day on Friday.
Avanti Court Primary School, in Carlton Drive, Barkingside, invited author Jack Trelawny to give a talk on being an author and the importance of reading.
Originally from Epping, Mr Trelawny is most famous for his Kernowland series, focussing on the adventures of a group of pirates.
Sapna Claire, who works at the school, told the Recorder the day had been a real treat for all 633 children involved.
She said: “It went really well, he came in and as wel as giving a talk he signed all their books for them so that made it extra special.
“We had the whole school dressed up as pirates, including the teachers, it was a really impressive sight.”
