Pupils and staff celebrated after completing the Ramsey Rotary Club Fun Run to raise money for their school.
Twenty nine pupils from Ramsey Spinning Infant School took part in the run last month along with hundreds of residents and businesses.
Assistant head Carol Birch was delighted with the children’s hard work to gain sponsorship.
She said: “The children wanted Minecraft books and Lego because of the film, that was the most popular option.”
The youngsters also came up with the unusual request of board games.
“When I asked them why they wanted board games they said it was because of the golden time they have on Friday afternoon so they wanted more to play together,” said Ms Birch.
The children and staff at the infant school managed to raise £708.48 but Year 1 pupil Nathan Halls shone above the rest, raising £115.

Ms Birch added: “His face was beaming when he got to the finish line.
“I invited Nathan to join the school council – The Spinning Parliament to decide on what the money should be put towards.”
Other children talked about wanting a school pet but decided against the idea after they started to question who would look after it in the holidays.
