A falconry display and tug-of-war contest were highlights of the Furze Platt Infant and Junior School summer fair in Maidenhead.
The annual fundraiser took place on Saturday at the Oaken Grove venue.
Activities included a tug-of-war contest, bouncy castle, face painting, skittles, coconut shy and 'soak the teacher'.
There was also morris dancing and maypole dancing as well as a dog show.
Prospect Estate Agency sponsored the fair. Staff took along a Mini and visitors had to guess the number of balloons inside it.
PTA chairwoman Jo Jennings said: "We enjoyed a great day with a high number of people turning out for the summer fair.
"The children particularly enjoyed the falconry flying display and other birds of prey."
A total of £7,250 was raised and the money will be used fund ongoing projects to develop an outdoor play area for the infant school and equip the junior school with IT technology.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
