267. Back to School

15/07/2016

A long, long time ago, Theo Willford went to Eardisley Primary School in Herefordshire, when his father was rector at the church just across the road.

Today, one of the teachers is my daughter, Mrs. Stone, and she invited me to talk to two of the classes there.

I wasn’t at all sure what to expect, but I had a wonderful afternoon, answering the children’s questions which were surprisingly insightful, and the afternoon passed in a flash.

Mrs. Stone set a competition for a couple of the classes, and as my homework I’ve been asked to adjudicate.

All of the pictures were very enjoyable, and it was clear everyone had worked very hard to produce their best work. I wish we could have awarded everyone a prize, but it wasn’t so here, in no particular order, are the winners…

I love Finley's composition - there's lots of movement here.
