CREATIVE pupils at Elton Primary School have been commended for designing their own sparkling versions of the Royal Arms for the Queen.
Youngsters were asked to create their own Coat of Arms for the Queen’s Jubilee and bring their entries to their nearby Churches Conservation Trust church.
They were judged and shortlisted before being sent to Emma Bridgewater, of crafts firm Emma Bridgewater Ltd, who made the final decision.
The contest, which saw hundreds of pupils across the UK take part, was divided into two age categories, with Aimee Overmire winning in the eight- to 11-year-olds section. Emma O’Brien and Annalise Knight were commended for their designs.
Elisha Smith, Year 3 teacher at the school in Thornton-le-Moors, said: “The response to the competition was great, about 140 of our pupils participated and entered their designs.
“We are extremely proud of all of their efforts and are thrilled. Congratulations to Aimee, Emma and Annalise.”
Emma Bridgewater said: “There were lots of lovely entries for the competition; I really enjoyed the judging as the children responded so variously to the competition challenge. ”
