Pupils at Dunmow St Mary's raised £825 for Children in Need on Friday.
A Pudsey Bear raffle proved very popular and two lucky winners took home the iconic cuddly toy.
Further donations were raised as part of a non-uniform day where children were encouraged to go dotty or wear yellow to show their support for the cause.
The school said they want to send a huge thank you to families for their generosity.
Great Dunmow Primary School
Students got dressed up and the fun included a Chocolate Challenge which was held in the school hall.
The pupils had an opportunity while blindfolded to guess the chocolate and an opportunity to 'pie' the teacher if they guessed the chocolate bar incorrectly.
Headteacher Mr Watts said it was great fun and raised over £800 for Children in Need in the process.
Online science experiment
Sandra Beale of Saffron Walden held an online science experiment called Chain Reaction, and raised £287 for Children in Need through donations.
Youngsters got involved via Zoom and had fun with self-inflating balloons, bouncing marbles and a volcano in a wine glass.
Sandra runs free STEAM ( science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) sessions every Monday morning for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
