Schools across Barking and Dagenham got into the World Book Day spirit today with teachers and pupils alike dressing as their favourite colours.

Some, such as Sydney Russell School, held other special events as well, including a challenge to create a book in a box.

Check out some of the colourful costumes in our gallery.
