The whole school took part in the event, which was organised by year three teacher James Hunton and raised more than £1,200.

The bulk of the money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation with 20% of the funds being used to buy new sports equipment for the school.

Teaching assistant Lisa Godbold, who is also the vice chair of the Friends of Elm Tree, said: 'They have all been brilliant. Their sportsmanship has been fantastic.

'Everyone has taken part and it has been a lot of fun.
