Red Nose Day Challenge

In addition to wearing red, pupils at Great Dunmow Primary School were asked to design a face to 'make people smile'.

The winner from each class got the opportunity to paint their design onto the face of the teacher.

The school said it was great fun and raised a few laughs.

Here are the winners:

The pupils, staff and parents of Stebbing Primary School took part in a day packed full of activities to help raise money for Red Nose Day.

They were inspired by Tom Daley's mammoth challenge which saw him row, cycle, run and swim over 290 miles from The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to his hometown in Plymouth. 

Pupils, members of staff and over 30 supportive parents signed up to take part attempt to match Tom Daley's efforts by cycling, rowing, jogging, skipping, scooting and dancing their way around the route marked out on the playground.

They covered 512 miles in total. 

To date, the school has raised £251 for Comic Relief.

Acting Headteacher Mr Le Masurier said they wanted to thank Great Dunmow Leisure Centre and Felsted Gym for donating the exercise bikes and rowing machines for the challenge.
