Campden in Lockdown - primary schools competition
We asked children in the two primary schools for their impressions of Campden in Lockdown and, as ever, we had some very imaginative responses.
St. Catharine’s School ran a poster competition and St. James’ and Ebrington School produced poems – ‘Lockdown Raps’ – that expressed the children’s feelings about the experience of being at home all day instead of at school. CCHS judged the competitions in the two schools and awarded cash prizes to the winners and runners-up. All the entries and photographs will be saved in the CCHS Archives.

But being in quarantine has put me in a mood…. (poem 12 by Molly)
Coronovirus, You are a terrible thing,
Can you not just leave? (poem 19 by Lucas)

Luckily we had already bought plenty, ….. (poem 11 by Oliver)
