    WORLD Book Day became the latest event to take place under lockdown on Thursday (March 4) – but that didn’t stop pupils at Henry Hinde Infant and Junior Schools from marking the occasion. Instead of going to school dressed in their pyjamas or as their favourite book character, children took part in a host of fun reading and writing activities in school and at home.
