Children from the Nailsea school also enjoyed sessions in yoga, dance and football skills to celebrate Sports Week.

The school put on a multi-skills festival and several sports days to enable children to compete against their class mates.

Paul Maines from Gordano Valley Archers was invited to teach pupils the popular sport while fencing instructor John Mason showed children how to duel.

On Friday, the pupils took part in a skip-a-thon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and to raise awareness of the importance of regular exercise.
