CHILDREN from a Northwich primary school have been getting creative for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The St Wilfred’s Catholic Primary pupils who attend after-school clubs were guided in their efforts by a teaching assistant who has a flair for art.

After finding some iconic images of Her Majesty online, the outline drawings of her were drawn before the children used their fingerprints to create a beautiful finish.

Donna Burston, who works as a manager of the out of hours clubs at the school in Hartford, said the children loved getting creative for the Jubilee.

“One of the after-school play workers is an artist so she drew the pictures,” she said.

“The children then helped pull them together with their fingerprints.

“They’ve also written their names on the back of each one.

“We get up to about 40 or 50 kids at the clubs so there’s been a lot of them involved.

“And it was nice because each of the children added a fingerprint, so they all felt part of it.

“They’ve been hung up in school now too along with a poem we all wrote, so its been a really nice experience for the children to take part in.”

Before breaking up for half-term the children also held a celebration in honour of The Queen, including dressing in red, white and blue and holding an outdoor tea party.

“We even had one of the pre-school members of staff dressing up as The Queen, so it’s been a lot of fun,” she added.

“They’re all really proud of their efforts and we’re even going to send one of the portraits off to The Queen with a card and the poem.”
