Youngsters at schools across South Holland have been showing off their talents in a variety of ways during autumn term.

Gardening, arts and crafts, music and community service have kept children and young people busy in Spalding and its surrounding villages.

Pottery painters Laura Sidajeva,  Emily Clay, Eliie-Mae Howlett and Mareks Pavars show off their artwork on a Greek day at Spalding Primary School.

Pupils at Surfleet and Weston St Mary Primary Schools were taken back in time by Roy and Margaret Figgis of Cambridgeshire-based Candles for All Ages who led a candle making and heritage workshop.

Children had the chance to get hands-on experience of making candles and also learnt about medieval, Tudor and Victorian English history.

A historic theme was also the case for children at Spalding Primary School where a Greek day saw young artists and craftsmen of the future emerge as pupils created their own pottery and mosaics.

Meanwhile, Pinchbeck United Under 14s football team helped Christmas shoppers with a fundraising bagpack in aid of the club and Pinchbeck Parish Council encouraged children at St Bartholomew’s Primary School and Ladybirds Pre-School, West Pinchbeck, to take up gardening by donating daffodil bulbs to them.
