Youngsters raising money for Children in Need had a surprise visit from Pudsey bear who arrived with a box of gifts.
More than 240 children and staff from St Michael’s Catholic primary school in East Ham dressed up as superheroes to take part in the national fundraiser.
Headteacher Katy Ward was Batman for the day as the school was transformed into a sea of colourful characters.
Their efforts have so far raised £350 but the final figure is expected to be higher as money is still coming in from a singing contest held on Thursday. During assembly children talked about what powers superheroes have and how they use them.
Lynsey Bohane, acting deputy head at the school, dressed up as Zorro. She said: “It was a fantastic success and our Year 3 children will be continuing to work on the superhero theme this week.
The school also won a Best.Assembly.Ever prize box containing gifts items. It was delivered by Pudsey bear who met the children after winning a national competition.
