Kilmersdon Primary School children get creative with help from visiting teachers
THE creative arts were high on the agenda at Kilmersdon Primary School last week.
From nursery rhymes to creative recycling the children had a lovely few days in the run-up to the half-term holidays.
Artist Charlotte Stowell worked with the pupils to create a permanent display showing the school's close links with the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill with their pail of water.
Another artist Lucia Harley helped the children create free-form, abstract 3D work to encourage the use of the school's outdoor area as a sculpture park. The designs included a peacock and small and large spheres.
Writhlington teacher Fiona Campus helped use Van Gogh as the inspiration for landscape images and Jo Gould, a dance teacher from the Blue School in Wells, supported by Lisa Cleverton and Esther Lewis-Smith, held dancing classes for the children.
Staff from the Carymoor Centre helped the children make paper beads and their own paper by mulching down tissue and squeezing it into shape on a paper-making machine.
