PUPILS past and present queued up at a Sheffield school to have the chance to hurl missiles at teachers.

Good-sport teachers gave up their Saturday to spend time in the stocks at Limpsfield Junior School, Wincobank - and be pelted with wet sponges during the summer fete.

John Bainbridge, headteacher, was delighted with the turnout.

He said: “It’s brilliant to have so much support.

“It’s also the launch of a new community project called Made in Brightside, which is aimed at promoting creative activities, where the school will be used as a venue for people to try their hands at different activities.”

Parent Michelle Fenwick, 46, whose nine-year-old daughter Megan attends the school, said: “It is fantastic to see so many people.”

Her daughter was one of scores of pupils who took part in a fun run on the day.

Other entertainment on offer included a cheer leading display and a tug-of-war event.
