Discover the winners of our mark making competition

We had a fantastic response to our Rhyme Challenge mark making competition. It was great to see so many wonderful pictures inspired by your child's favourite nursery rhyme – Incey Wincy being a particular favourite!


Our judges had a difficult job to choose just five winners, but we're delighted to announce that they are:

  • Elizabeth Grace Jones, age 9 months - Incey Wincey Spider
  • Reece Edmund, age 21 months - Baa Baa Black Sheep
  • Abdur-Rahmaan Mahmood, age 3 years - The Wheels on the Bus
