Youngsters at Pakefield Primary School have got their creative juices flowing in order to raise funds for the school's Parent and Teacher Association (PTA).

The 'Love Is…' idea was put forward by the school council, consisting of pupils from every year group; and it was organised by the school PTA.

The children were given paper heart templates to draw pictures or poems to show what love means to them and these have been displayed in the school.

Cate Henderson, chairman of Pakefield Primary School PTA, said: 'The children's work is fabulous and very heart warming; some of them are real tear jerkers.

'They have created a huge range of different things from pictures to lovely pieces of writing and even raps. Parents have really encouraged their children to take part and it is clear to see all the children really enjoyed taking part.'

The competition was open to pupils from Reception to Year 6, each child that entered donated 50 pence to the PTA fund, which will help finance extra activities such as school trips.

Every child received a certificate and prize winners from each year group received a stationary prize with a love theme.
