Rainbow Competition Winner

 Lucy - 3C

 

We've got a coloured tissue paper collage on one side and then 5 different coloured shapes on the other: hearts for Hope, crosses for Forgiveness, medals for Courage, people for Trust and doves for Peace. It takes up the whole front window.

 

Week 1: Competition of the week

Children across the UK are putting up homemade rainbow creations in their windows at home, in a bid to spread hope and positivity amid the coronavirus COVID-19 self-isolation period.

 

The rainbow trend has gone viral after schools across the country closed on Friday 20th to help stop the spread of the virus. A Facebook page has been set up called Believe In Rainbows, where families are posting pictures of their rainbow crafts.

 

There's a lot of imagination on display, with posters urging people to "be kind", "stay safe" and "be positive", along with rainbow balloons to celebrate birthdays, and rainbow caterpillars to symbolise that we'll emerge triumphant.

 

Our competition this week is to create a rainbow that represents our school. You can use any materials, images and words. Please take a photograph of it and email it to bluecoat@durhamlearning.net Make sure you display your rainbow on a window in your home.
