Notts County defenders Matt Tootle and Ben Hall visited Dovecote Primary School in Clifton as part of the Football In The Community-delivered Premier League Primary Stars project.
During the afternoon, the two answered questions from the Key Stage 2 pupils and got involved in their PE session.
The Premier League Primary Stars project uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
As well as engaging children in physical activity and healthy living, PLPS uses the power of the beautiful game to teach core subjects such as Maths, English, PE and PSHE (personal, social, health and economic education).
Tootle told the FITC site: “I hadn’t done a school visit for a while so it was nice to do it today. I like answering the kids’ questions and just making them happy I suppose.
"At that age, they’re just really curious and some are football-mad like I used to be so it’s really nice for them to be able to ask us anything they want to know.
“Also when I was a young kid, I got snubbed by a footballer so I always said to myself – if I ever become a footballer, I’ll never snub anyone so I’m trying to be a good role-model now.”

Brighton loanee Hall, who was making his first school visit, said: “It was great interacting with the kids and nice to see their faces light up as they saw us.
“Some of the questions were tricky but it was really enjoyable. The kids obviously look up to us and it’s a nice way of giving back to the community."
