Children dressed up as teddy bears to raise money for Children in Need on Friday.
Pupils at Gospel Oak School in Mansfield Road, Gospel Oak, wore bear costumes, brought in their teddy bears or wore Pudsey T-shirts before holding a bake sale after school.
A queue of hungry youngsters and their parents snaked out the door before the sale began.
From donations and cake sales, the school raised £537.27 towards the annual BBC Children In Need appeal, raising money for disabled and impoverished children.
The school raises money for the appeal every year.
Business manager Claire Bailey said: “We do it to teach the children the importance of helping other people. We always have a really good turnout.”
