Pupils in one primary school saw yellow when they chose to raise as much money as possible for charity.
Children at Weeting Primary took part in a non-uniform day by wearing items of yellow clothing and planted flowers as part of Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
The Mini Pots of Care Day was part of the charity’s fundraising initiative and included yellow-themed crafts.
Younger pupils were able to take home daffodils planted at the school last year, while older children planted others to care for until spring.
Class one teacher, Hannah Keeler, said: “The younger ones like things quite instant so it’s quite a long time for then but it’s been good for them to be involved in a longer project. “Depending on their age and their ability to understand we talked about family members who had been sick and the older children understood it a bit more.
“They were very excited to be in their yellow and to be involved in something that was a bit different.”
A total of £303.75 was raised for the charity by the school.
