Staff at Sainsbury’s slipped on their daps and climbed into shorts to take part in a PE lesson.
Their visit to Stoke St Michael Primary School was part of this year’s Active Kids campaign.
Since Active Kids began in February 2005, the supermarket has helped to donate equipment to schools in the area, and nationally, more than £100 million worth of equipment has been donated to more than 40,000 organisations across the country.
Stoke St Michael received a donation of £250 last September.
Active Kids manager Carly Munday said: “For seven years, Active Kids has helped children in the Frome area to understand the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
“Last year, we reached a huge milestone in donating more than £100m worth of equipment since Active Kids launched in 2005.
“This year, with customers’ support, we can continue to help make a positive difference to children’s lives, both inside and outside the classroom.”
Customers can collect vouchers at Sainsbury’s until May 31.
