PICTURE GALLERY: Saffron Walden schoolchildren fund-raise for Children in Need

PRIMARY school children in Saffron Walden have today (Friday November 16) hosted a range of money-spinning activities for Children in Need.

Over 220 boys and girls at the RA Butler Academy infant school took part in a highly energetic and fun Yoga Marathon. They also combined this with the Blue Peter suggestion for this annual event, by completing their yoga in their pyjamas!

Led by youga teacher Emma Stevens, the children acted out fairy tale stories using 40 different yoga poses, sang songs and learnt how to relax.

Children at St Thomas More Primary School had a non-school uniform day and held a range of fun activties in the school hall. That included teddy-bear racing, ‘Design a Pudsey’ colouring in competition, and ‘Pin the Nose on Pudsey’ competition.

Meanwhile, pupils at Katherine Semar Infants School came into school dressed as colours of the rainbow and held some fun activties.
