For a day teds outnumber school pupils.
Well, that was the case at Glendale Infant School in Skye Close when the entire school held a teddy bears' picnic in aid of Action Research, whose mascot is Paddington Bear.
Each pupil paid 50p to bring in their favourite teddy for a picnic lunch in the school grounds to raise pounds 200 for the charity dedicated to preventing and treating disease and disability.
School secretary Carol Hoverd said: "It was a very nice day. We have 250 children here but many more bears, and one or two of the teachers brought in their favourite."
