Pupils at an infant school in Daventry have been getting into the spirit of the World Cup with an eco-friendly competition.

All of the children from Falconer’s Hill Infant School on Ashby Road were invited to take part in the challenge which asked them to design a new World Cup made entirely out of recycled materials.

There were dozens of entries to the competition and the results were revealed on Saturday when the school held its summer fete. They were judged by the school’s mascot.

The winner overall was six-year-old Bethany-Amber Todd.

There was a winner for Year 1, Jayden Russell-Coles, six, and a winner for Year 2, seven-year-old Zaki Lewcock.

Headteacher Coleen Wilkins said: “With the World Cup currently on, we wanted to do something tied into the event.

“As we are an eco-school, we always like to do 
something that is eco-friendly and therefore we asked the children to come up with a new design for the World Cup, but asked them to make it out of recycled materials.

“We had a lot of very good entries and Fizz, our mascot who judged the competition, had a very tough time picking the three winnners.

“There were some absolutely fantastic designs made by the children.

“The children had a lot of fun coming up with the designs and making their World Cup

“We have ended up with three very worthy winners of the competition.”
