A DONCASTER school was transformed into a who’s who of movie character costumes when children took part in a charity fancy dress day.

Pupils at Hill House School, in Auckley, dressed up as some of their favourite film characters to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

It was also combined with a spelling competition which saw lower and middle school pupils learn a series of spellings set by their teachers.

Children aged between five and seven were all asked to memorise 20 new words.

Older groups of pupils had to learn more words, with the highest number being set for the 10 and 11-year-olds at the school, who were asked to learn to spell 50 words.

The money raised will be added to the £4,000 collected by the pupils for good causes last year.

A school spokesman said everyone had enjoyed the fancy dress spelling fundraiser.

Dozens took part in the event at the fee-paying school, which includes television presenter Jeremy Clarkson among its former pupils.
