The winning session began with the story of Stick Man, then every pupil spent the next few hours painting and decorating.

A spokesman said: "A huge thanks to Claire Neave, the owner of Paint Pot and to our parents who ensured we had the highest number of votes, despite being a small school.

"The 3,4 and 5 year olds thoroughly enjoyed the session."
