VIDEO SLIDESHOW: Schools go extra mile for Sport Relief

Waiting for Video...

The chance to pelt a head teacher with a soaking sponge and marathon baking sessions all helped Ilkeston school children go the extra mile to raise money for Sport Relief.

More than £300 was raised at Cotmanhay Junior School where head Simon Robinson charged pupils 20 pence a shot to hurl sodden sponges at him.

Pupils also took part in a one mile walk.

Children at Chaucer Junior School were challenged to bake four cupcakes each using ingredients of their choice, while staff held their own bake off to see who could bake the best lemon sponge.

The school raised more than £180.

Hallam Fields Junior School pupils also took part in a bake off and ran one mile around the playground, raising almost £200.

Sports clothes were worn by pupils at Dallimore Primary School who also took part in an obstacle course and colouring competition, raising more than £200.

Sport Relief provides positive support to children and families, both overseas and in the UK. This year it raised £53 million.
