It’s that time again – my annual Christmas Card competition for primary school children in Hornsey & Wood Green.
I visited some of the children actually during one of their painting classes (Highgate Primary – my old school) to see how they were getting on. As I walked in Christmas Carols were blaring out and there was glitter and golden snowflakes everywhere. Paintings full of Christmas trees and Santas – as you would expect – but there are always lots of things you would never have thought of in a million years. Each year to date – I have set a particular theme – but this year decided to ask the children to do whatever Christmas means to them. As ever – the children were huge fun – very excited and inquisitive – and it is a lovely way to finish as my last visit on a Friday afternoon!
I will be judging on the 11th and the winner and runners up will be announced shortly after that.
Brilliant idea Lynne
This years’s set by the children themes.
