Children from Nelmes Primary School, in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, took part in a school sports day last Thursday for the Lloyds TSB sports event.
The children, from Years 1 and 2, completed fitness activities and individual and relay races to mark the occasion.
Headteacher Vivien Shooter said: “We were just so pleased to see the children enjoying the sports.
“The weather was beautiful, it was a really enjoyable day for the children and they loved every bit of it.

An estimated three million students took part in the week, which is designed to persuade young people to engage with sport.
