First Prize, Theo
Theo is 4 years old and absolutely loves steam trains! His favourites are Stephenson's Rocket, the Flying Scotsman and the Mallard.Theo's picture is of all the things he thought about when we talked about our visit to the Roundhouse last Christmas - learning about George Stephenson and the Rocket, the cog game in the learning area, his ride on a steam train and lastly the turntable itself! 

Second Prize, Poppy, age 7
Poppy's crayon picture stood out for its colour and vibrancy. Depicting a train chasing the virus out of town, Poppy also pays a beautiful tribute to the NHS.

Third Prize, Jakey, age 9
Jakey's picture is like a scene from a movie. The train is transporting super heroes to fight the coronavirus.
