Beetles, spiders and ladybirds filled a classroom at a Portishead school as children dressed up in minibeast costumes.
Reception pupils from Trinity Primary School, in Marjoram Way, have been learning about insects as part of their topic on understanding the world.
During lessons they made a bug hotel in the school garden and they have been monitoring the activity over the past few weeks.
The children were able to go into school dressed up as insects for their ugly bug ball on Friday.
At the ball, pupils enjoyed dancing like bugs, making fruit cocktail sticks and taking part in minibeast activities.
