There were a number of different activities for children from across the year groups to get involved with including bike riding, yoga and marshmallow roasting to make smores.

The school's headteacher Alun Davies was even on hand to act as a DJ while youngsters got involved in dances such as the conga.

"It's gone fantastically," said assistant headteacher Sandra Thornton.

"It's been really amazing. The kids had a fantastic time and so did the staff."
