A south Norfolk high school was taken over by Oompa Loompas, Matilda and even Willy Wonka himself during a Dahlicious dress-up day.
Pupils in Year 7 at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston swapped their school uniform for fun costumes as they dressed up as characters from Roald Dahl’s books on Thursday.
The day was organised by English teachers Kate Roe and Hannah Doherty.
Kate Nichols, link officer at the school, said: “Tye Caldwell dressed as Willy Wonka and Amy Baldry was an Oompa Loompa and they looked very good.
“The atmosphere in the school has been brilliant.
“People have been singing in the corridors.
“We did it last year for the first time and it was such a success we decided to hold it again.”
Children who took part paid £1 towards Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity which helps buy equipment for ill and disabled children.
