Children also attend class dressed as their sporting heroes
Pupils at Axminster Community Primary Academy took on a range of physical activities to raise funds for Sport Relief last week.
And the children and many staff, from Nursery up to Year 6, participated in several events to aid the charity.
Each child from reception upwards ran the daily mile. By the end of the week they had completed a whopping 800 miles between them.
Reception class teacher Ursula Powell told The Herald: “The children showed great enthusiasm and determination! All staff were very proud of their efforts.

“On Friday the children were timed doing the daily mile, and the fastest girl and boy and most improved pupil from every year group was rewarded with a medal and certificate.
“The children also came to school dressed in a variety of sporty clothing or super hero costumes, which raised approximately £100 for Sport Relief’s many causes.
