Can anyone give me some inspiration? I have ideas that are suitable for primary schools but DS thinks they are too babyish for secondary schools!! Something obvious that doesn't entail too much in the way of a complicated outfit would be ideal!!

James Bond, Oliver Twist, Demon Headmaster, Jesus , Julius Caesar, Sherlock Holmes, Stig of the Dump, Long John Silver

I'd check they definitely are dressing up as it's v unusual for secondary schools and the last thing your ds would want would be to turn up in costume if no one else was..,

OMG - you mean the hassle of finding costumes doesn't stop when they get to secondary school ?

Our secondary school is doing it, but in the letter they sent out they said that normal non uniform clothes were fine because many book characters do just wear normal clothes, as long as the child could answer as to who they are supposed to be when asked, and can describe the book.

I think they are handling it really well!

Sherlock Holmes in a Cumberbatch style would be easy. Or Dr Who.
