Pupils from Haddenham Community Infant and Junior Schools have been getting artistic and thinking green in an environmentally themed art competition organised by Haddenham Baptist Church as part of their Harvest celebrations.
Entitled 'Celebrating and Caring for Creation', the competition was based on the principle that being truly thankful at Harvest leads us into responsibility to care for all that we enjoy.
The competition was divided into three categories, in which children of different age groups were invited to produce an A4 piece of art work on the following themes:
- Reception — Year 2: A picture of something that you think is amazing about the natural world that you would like to say thank you for.
- Years 3-4: A picture of something that people do or don't do that damages the environment that we need to say sorry for and do differently.
- Years 5-6: A picture of something bad that is happening or will happen if we don't look after our world.
Fiftenn children entered their artwork, with runners up and a winner in each category. The pictures were displayed in Haddenham Baptist Church on Saturday 3rd October so that children and their families could come and see their artwork displayed.
