CHILDREN from seven schools received awards at the Suffolk Show for their outstanding artwork.

A colourful display of the winning work was on show in the Suffolk Schools' Competition Marquee.

Malt production firm Muntons, of Stowmarket, organised and sponsored the event and Alan Ridealgh, group managing director, said the entrants had all been of a high standard, particularly in the Foundation Stage category, which was won by Bures Primary School.

Mr Ridealgh said: “Although all the work was brilliant in this category the judges were unanimous in picking our winners from Bures Primary School.

“Overall we had some fantastic art submitted from over 50 schools this year and over 1,000 pieces of work.”

Other winners included pupils from Wood Ley Primary School, Stowmarket, in the Key Stage One category for painting a scarecrow, Bramford Primary School in Key Stage Two (lower) for a board game design, and Clare Middle School in the Key Stage Two (upper) section for an illustrated Harvest poem.
