Pupils at a primary school in Willesden Green have raised almost £2,000 for charity by imitating a Jack-in-the box.
The youngsters at North-West London Jewish Day School in Willesden Lane, took part in a sponsored jump on a bouncy castle in support of Sport Relief.
Nearly 300 children aged from three to 11 spent two minutes leaping as many times as possible with some children topping 200 jumps.
Rabbi Daniel Kerbel, headteacher, said: “I’m so happy that our school was part of this amazing Sport Relief programme.
“Our goal is to educate children to make an impact in the wider community and to look outwards and not just inwards. Thank you to our Reception teacher, and PE coordinator, Danielle Stone who organised this special event.”
