Charity afternoons were held at Yatton Junior School, raising hundreds of pounds in the process.
The pupils had some great fun in the sunshine while collecting more than £550 for charity.
All the children were involved in planning, organising and running stalls as well as activities, messy obstacle courses, mazes, cake and toy sales, Nerf Gun target shooting, face painting and lucky dips.
This year the chosen charities to benefit were Cancer Research UK and Dogs Friends.
Jon Heywood, deputy headteacher for the Federation of Yatton Schools: “This is very much a child-led event with children choosing which charities they wish to raise money for, doing all the planning of the activities and collecting in the money.

“It is always brilliant to see their enthusiasm in working together and raising such a phenomenal amount for good causes that matter so much to them.”
The school will be taking part in the carnival on Saturday, which starts at 2.45pm in Cherry Grove and will feature activities on its field later in the day.
