Staff at Sheringham Primary School took to the stage in aid of Children in Need today, in a Stars in Their Eyes-style rock concert featuring acts ranging from Taylor Swift to One Direction.

An appreciative audience of youngsters dressed as cartoon characters, superheroes and sporting stars screamed and cheered as their teachers gave renditions of songs including Katy Perry's Firework and Mamma Mia, by Swedish supergroup Abba.

The show was organised by Year 4 teacher Ingrid Stocker, who donned a white catsuit and wig to appear on stage as Abba's Agnetha Faltskog.

'We wanted to do something a little bit different so decided to ask pupils to come dressed as their heroes,' Mrs Stocker said. 'And I think the fantastic response we have had just goes to show what a caring community school we are.'

Pupils, whose costumes ranged from Spiderman, Batman and Wolverine, to police officers and Disney princesses, were asked to donate a £1 each.

'We raised £430, which is brilliant,' Mrs Stocker said. 'Children in Need is something that is close to our pupils' hearts and I think they were really pleased to know that they were helping other children less fortunate than themselves.'
