The red uniforms of a Llandudno school were replaced by a blaze of colour as children dressed up in costume to celebrate the birthday of the popular author Roald Dahl.
Pupils at Ysgol Bodafon came to lessons dressed as their favourite characters, including Willy Wonka, Matilda, Veruca Salt and James and the Giant Peach.

They were among thousands of children around the UK taking part in Roald Dahl Day, which celebrates the life and work of the children’s author Roald Dahl, and which takes place every year on 13th September, the day that he was born.
Trystan Lloyd Owen, head teacher of Ysgol Bodafon, said: “Roald Dahl continues to be one of the most popular authors among our pupils, and we were impressed by the creativity that the children showed in coming to school dressed as their favourite characters. A lot of time and effort went into the costumes.
“Events like this are a great way to get children engaged with books and encourage them to enjoy reading, as well as having some fun along the way.
