CHILDREN at Barkway First School have been awarded a certificate of distinction after their participation in a national newspaper writing competition.

Year 3 and 4 pupils researched and produced a newspaper called The Barkway Bugle, for The Guardian's Newsday 2008 competition.

Head teacher Jenny Heinzelmann said: "We chose to do ours with a historical theme.

"We researched the Victorian era and tried to get everything in, including art and sport.

"It was fun for the children, and they also learned plenty about our history."

The youngsters also won a Cambridgeshire Young Person's History Award (CYPHA) for their newspaper.

The awards, which are presented annually by the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History, aim to support and encourage the study of the county's history by young people.
