Pupils from St Thomas More Catholic Primary School came to the Academy in October to take part in an art workshop led by Mr Chilman. Working alongside ex pupils of the school, now in Year 7, they were given the opportunity to work with clay in order to produce a mural celebrating the primary school’s 40th anniversary this September! They were given a brief to create not only a self portrait, but to also produce portraits of their friends and staff and to show what learning takes place in their school. The final artwork was fantastic, truly celebrating the the strong community and the achievements of the school and the children worked exceptionally hard throughout the day. The mural will be presented to the Head Teacher, Maria Miles, and be part of their 40th anniversary celebrations.
Thomas Davis a Year 7 student at All Saints' Academy who took part in the project said 'I had a great day… I really enjoyed working with clay and the painting afterwards!'
