If you have visited our school office recently you may have felt many sets of eyes looking at you. What? You may ask. There are animal sculptures positioned around the reception area – elephants in front of the fish tank, two oran-gu-tan’s either side of the door, another elephant staring at you as you speak to Mrs. Holland and Mrs. Smith. Oh and what is that you see out of the corner of your eye under the table? A dodo peeping out watching the daily routines of people coming and going.
These are the sculptures made by the Artclub, an after-school club. Since Christmas the children have designed and made these each week. They were inspired by the book The Journey Home by Frann Preston-Gannon which we read and then the pupils chose to either paint or make sculptures. You can see how they were made on the Art and Creativity blog. http://artandcreativityrobinhood.blogspot.co.uk/
