The school, in Bristol Road, celebrated the launch of its learning hub, called The Hive, on March 8 to tie in with World Book Day.

Children and staff dressed as book characters and held a second-hand book sale in the afternoon.

There was an official launch with the library, which was opened by Gary Lewis, chief executive of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership.

Headteacher, Amy Townsend, said: “It was a fantastic day and the children were so enthusiastic.

“Reading is such an import skill to have and by enhancing the library we have given the children a relaxing, but vibrant place where they can enjoy books.”

The Friends of Wraxall School Association has supported the school by providing money towards some furniture, including a sofa.
