Pupils at schools across Bradford have been taking part in red-themed fun activities to raise money for Comic Relief.

There was a splash of colour at Thornbury Primary Leadership Academy, with a red-themed or pyjamas non-uniform day and the children donating money to ditch their school uniforms.

The pupils also had the chance splat or soak their teachers with a 'pie the teacher' activity alongside a wet sponge throwing challenge.

Other fun-filled activities included decorating and selling biscuits and buns, find the red nose, a red nose treasure hunt, pop a balloon to win a prize, lollipop game, face and red nose painting, selling sweet cones, guess how many red noses in the picture and fundraising basketball.

Pupils at High Crags Primary Leadership Academy in Shipley, pupils marked the day with a ’wear red’ non-uniform day with the pupils donating money to ditch their school uniforms for the day. They also had the chance to splat their teacher in a wet sponge throwing challenge.

The High Crags pupils channelled their inner Mary Berry by baking up a storm to create some tasty treats to raise more dough for the cause.

The children were invited to design their own red nose, and take part in a red nose hunt around school. They also were asked to bring in their spare change to try to bury a giant red nose in money. They raised more than £700 for Comic Relief.

Clare Daddy, Principal of Thornbury Primary Leadership Academy, said: “It was a brilliant day and the children have loved the chance to raise money for such a worthy cause as Comic Relief, especially the chance to soak and pie their teachers. Thank you to everybody who worked so hard to make the day a success.”

Helen Ray, Principal of High Crags Primary Leadership Academy, said: “The children have really been exercising their funny bones today and I’m very proud of them for raising such a great sum for such a worthwhile cause.”
