It’s not just the summer holidays that are looming for one Hemel Hempstead school.
As Micklem Primary held its summer fayre, pupils in all year groups were encouraged to go head-to-head in a ‘longest loomband’ contest.
The children had spent their break and lunch times over three days on the projects, which were unveiled during the fayre.
During the afternoon on Friday, Year 5 were announced as the winners.
Deputy headteacher Steve Lloyd said: “We are celebrating being a good school and the success of the children this year.
“They have created the world’s longest loombands to try and create a bit of excitement and to give them something to compete for.”
Loombands are a new children’s craze involving making jewellery from lots of coloured elastic bands.
