Pupils at Crosshall Infant School got creative by designing their dream homes as part of a competition.
From immaculate houses with butterfly-filled gardens to a football-themed house and a train, the children used their imaginations to create the pictures for St Neots estate agents Giggs & Company.
The winner in the Reception category was Maison Izzard, while Mia Wilcock took first place in Year 1 and Morgan Cook in Year 2. The overall winner was reception pupil Sophie Tipping-Laird. They were each given a £10 book voucher, and the school received a £100 voucher, which were presented to the pupils by company owner Matthew Giggs on Thursday (June 26). Sophie’s drawing also appears on a leaflet which the company has distributed.
Vanessa Parker, headteacher’s PA at the school, said: “We did have some amazing and beautiful designs. The pupils were absolutely thrilled – they were very proud winners.”
Natalie Brookman, general manager at Giggs & Company, said: “I thought they were brilliant – they really put a good effort in. Some of the drawings that they turned out were absolutely fantastic.”
