Pupils at Nelson’s Marsden Community Primary School are delighted that many of them have become Blue Peter badge winners.
Headteacher Gemma Whaling said: “Around a year ago two sisters in one family won badges. Following this, a number of other children submitted successful applications. They have all been presented with their badges in assembly and this has spurred on other applications.
“Just before the Easter holidays I set the children a challenge to gain 20 badges. They have been very busy over the past few weeks sending in pictures and stories and reviewing episodes.
“We now have 20 children – and one member of staff! – with over 30 badges between them.”
