Madonna, Mr T and Ian Botham went back to school today for Comic Relief in South Woodford.

Young pupils at Oakdale Junior School in Oakdale Road were celebrating the 25th anniversary of Comic Relief by dressing up as 1980s icons.

The A-Team got to share classroom space with Cyndi Lauper, while children also brought in all their loose change to donate to the national charity.

It appeared they’d had to raid their parents’ wardrobes to join in the fun on Red Nose Day.

Deputy headteacher Jenny Davies said: “Their parents have had a lot of good fun going down memory lane.”

Each class was collecting its loose change together to see who could make the biggest Red Nose with it.
