YOUNGSTERS at a Fenland school put their best thinking caps on to come up with designs for their second annual wooden spoon scarecrow competition.

This year’s theme for the competition at Parson Drove’s Payne School was film and television characters and there were a whole of host of different creations.

Every child was given a wooden spoon to use as the base of their competition entry and there was a winner chosen from each year group.

Parents and staff were also able to have a go.

Characters ranged from Nanny McPhee to the Little Mermaid and Sponge Bob.

Children judged the adults’ entries, while staff picked the winning pupils’ designs.

Headteacher Sue Blyth said it was the second time the school had staged the competition and she said this year’s entries were better than last year.

“We had a fabulous array of entries and we allowed parents to enter this year. It was definitely a bigger and better event this year,” she said.

The scarecrows were all displayed in the school hall on Friday so everyone had a chance to see the creations.
