Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a group of schoolchildren, who became mini superheroes for the day to raise money for Children in Need.
Pupils – including the school orchestra – handed over their pocket money at Gospel Oak School in Mansfield Road, Gospel Oak, on Friday to dress up as their favourite action hero.
Comic book superheroes from Hollywood action films were the most popular. Most boys opted to dress as Spider-Man and Batman, while girls transformed into Supergirl or Wonder Woman.
Although lessons were not given any superhuman twist, children did get the chance to perfect their best superhero poses in a special PE class.
The school raised £209.50 for BBC charity Children in Need, which held its annual fundraising day on Friday. It takes part in the annual fundraising drive every year.

Teaching assistant Victoria Achille, who organised the non-uniform day, said: “There’s a buzz when they dress up. We hold other days like this, and they always look forward to it.”
She added: “It’s for other children, who might not get what some children have.”
