Children swapped their books for beats to take part in a fundraising dance-athon.
Pupils from St Francis Primary School in Nailsea held their annual sponsored event to raise money for Borderlands, which supports refugees in Bristol.
The youngsters donned sports clothes and danced non-stop to popular tracks including Paradise by George Ezra and A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman film.
The dance-athon was led by a specialist dance teacher who taught them different moves to complement the songs.
Children danced all morning to raise funds for their chosen cause.
