HOMEMADE instruments helped children create a wall of noise in the name of charity.
Year one pupils, aged five and six, at Aylward Primary School in Pangbourne Drive, Stanmore, were sponsored by friends and family in the unusual endeavour on Friday.
Teacher Sara Isman said: “They were taking part in Let’s Hear It For Deaf Children, raising money for Hearing Dogs For Deaf People.
“The idea was the children to make as much noise as possible for a minute. The children made their own instruments using recycled rubbish because we are studying the topic of sound in science.
“It was a cacophony of sound. They loved it and they were very happy. They enjoyed being noisy in school, which is something they are usually discouraged from doing.”
Fifty-nine youngsters from two classes took part and raised £60, which will be handed over when a representative and a hearing dog from the charity visits the school later this term.
