A primary school in Northampton encouraged pupils to write down the things they were most afraid of on helium-filled balloons and released them as part of an anti-bullying week.

Briar Hill Primary School combined with international charity UNICEF yesterday for the playground event.

Victoria Warren, a teacher, who is head of the primary's care team, said: "We have launched a Care term to tie in nicely with UNICEF awareness week, children in need and anti-bullying week.

"Every class wrote down their individual fears, placed them onto a balloon and then the whole school released those fears into the sky for a whole school-assembly.

"Afterwards we sang or signed to Katy Perry's song 'Roar' on the playground."
