Entrepreneurial primary school children packed out the playground at the Clewer Green School’s autumn fair on Saturday.
Children filled jam jars with goodies and toys which were sold on, there were various raffles and tombolas, and a live band with 15 musicians from Windsor Boys’ and Windsor Girls’ Schools who performed to the 266 pupils, family members and 130 volunteers.
Two friends, Phoebe Kimber and Charlotte Batterham, who are both nine, decided to run a loom band stall at the fair and even made their own promotional flyers and displays.
Eight-year-old Jay Haines helped teaching assistant Aneshka Drahota look after two Shetland ponies which pupils were able to ride and groom.
Early estimates indicate the school raised £7,000 from the event after costs.
It is hoping to spend some of the money to develop both outdoor and indoor play areas.
