Some of Roald Dahls most famous story characters were brought to life by school pupils as they celebrated the author's birthday.

Willy Wonka and Matilda could be seen walking around Alburgh with Denton Primary School on Wednesday, as children and staff dressed up for the event.

The school invited all of its 103 pupils, who are aged four to 11, to get involved and hosted a number of themed activities during the day.

Reception pupils were tasked with finding golden tickets as a part of a treasure hunt around the school. The activity was designed to help the new pupils find their way around the school and meet staff.

Meanwhile, some of the older pupils had the chance to watch an online presentation about the author.
