Pupils at Moorthorpe Primary brought a bit of joy to the district with a colourful twist on a treasure hunt.

The ElmsallRocks project involved pupils decorating stones and hiding them in different locations, from South Kirkby to Frickley, for other children to find.

The project was set up by schoolboy Daniel Barker and his mum Diane Whitehead, who volunteers at the school.

She said: “Tt helped to keep kids off their computers over the summer.

“There was a lot of joy for pupils who took part and it helped them to express their creativity.

“My son got the idea from a similar project near Doncaster and said he wanted to bring a smile to peoples’ faces.”
