The film, produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures, hit UK cinemas on June 21 – nine years on from the release of Toy Story 3 back in 2010.

And youngsters made sure to mark the occasion by coming to school kitted out in outfits inspired by the beloved characters.

The idea for the day came from Jaxon Dagg, eight, from Class 5, and also saw pupils bring their toys into school.

Head teacher Margarita Acklam said: “The day was the brainchild of Jaxon Dagg from Class 5 and the children arrived dressed as the fantastic characters with some bringing their toys to add to the occasion.

“Peyton Lancaster from Class 4 was the most amazing Jessie and she doubled up as usherette delivering ice-creams to all classes as part of the special movie day.”
