Three Year five students came away with prizes after impressing the judges for Headlands Funk.

Headlands School asked primary school children in Bridlington to find a creative way to put ideas, thoughts and feelings together about coming to secondary school.

Entries were received in the form of songs, poems and jingles with prizes for first, second and third won by Burlington School.

Freddie Suggitt, 11, won first place winning a iPod Nano for his song about the excitements of going to secondary school for the first time and did it the ‘duck song’ theme tune.

He said: “I challenged myself to enter the competition. I’m ready now to move on to secondary school.”

Second place went to Isabelle Simpson who wrote a piece about her going to secondary school and meeting new people. The 10-year-old won an iPod shuffle.

Third place went to Tian Cay, aged 10, who won a pair of Sony headphones for his creative writing about secondary school. Headlands music teacher Bernie Halkyard said: “We thoroughly enjoyed the day and we were impressed and delighted to be able to work these talented young students.”

There was more joy for Burlington when the Headlands Funk bear was presented to the school.

Burlington School headteacher Alison Beckett said: “We are incredibly proud of all of our talented children and wish them well as they move on to the next stage of their learning journey.”
