TEENAGERS spent world book day acting out scenes in famous novels for schoolchildren.

Sixth-form students from Plumstead Manor in Old Mill Road, performed Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes last Thursday afternoon in front of more than 25 primary children.

The children from St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School in Greenwich gathered in WHSmith at Greenwich Shopping Park in Bugsby Way, Charlton, to see the drama students' performance.

Afterwards the students read to the children in one-to-one sessions.

Head of Drama at Plumstead Manor, Georgie Sneddon, said: "As drama students they are naturally very passionate about literature and they really succeeded in bringing the books to life and capturing the imaginations of the younger children.
