Pupils at a Ripponden school have gone football crazy after they redesigned the St George’s Cross to show their support for England in the World Cup.

Children at Ripponden J&I School donned red and white shirts and formed the shape of the English flag on June 12.

The school will also hold a tournament, where each class will hold their own matches.

They will have the choice to either play, report on or cheer lead for each match.

Finals will be held against other classes, so year one and two will play each other. There will be a trophy for each winner and a large trophy for the highest scorer.
