Primary school pupils have become curling enthusiasts after following the Winter Olympics.

Children at Theydon Bois Primary School have been closely following events in Sochi, with each class allocated a team to support.

But rather than the thrills’n’spills of snowboarding, downhill racing or ski jumping, it is the curling which has caught their imagination.

Headteacher Lesley Lewis said: “The children have particularly enjoyed watching the Curling competition and we are looking forward to holding our own inter-house curling competition”
