Colburn pupils egg-cel at art competition

Colburn children and staff have ended an egg-cellent term with their annual decorated egg competition.

Themed categories for entries included famous people, sport, fairy tales and superheroes.

Children have egg-celled themselves this year with entries such as: Harry Potter Quidditch Match, Rapunzel, Hulk, Batman, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Rugby Match, Rosa Parks on the Bus, Spiderman and Football Match.

The entries were judged by Angie Dale, chair of Governors.

She said: ‘With so many fantastic entries, the competition was very difficult to judge.

“The children made an outstanding effort with their creations.”

Debbie Nicholas, interim head teacher, said: “Our children have again shown their amazing imaginative abilities.

“We know that children taking part in art activities is linked to improvements in numeracy, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skills.  Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork.

“Well done, Colburn pupils.”
