Pupils’ art gallery commemorates the WWI Centenary
To commemorate one hundred years since the end of World War I, Newton Road pupils created an art gallery to showcase their tributes to the festival of remembrance.
Pupils from across the school showed off their creativity, with clay poppies made by Year 1 & 2 pupils in Ants Class, sweetheart pin cushions created by Years 5 & 6 in Hawks class as well as many other individual pieces and whole-class creations.
Mrs Robinson, Family Support Officer at Newton Road School, said: “So many hours of work went into creating the wonderful art gallery to remember the fallen.
“Pupils were really keen to put on a good display for such an important occasion, and we were pleased to welcome many of our parents and our governors to see the pupils’ artwork. There were so many lovely comments from parents about the high standard of the work on display.”
Mrs Goodwin, Governor, added: “It was a beautiful display, with so many thoughtful pieces of work to remember this centenary year. All of the pupils should be very proud of what they have achieved.”
Following the exhibition at the school, the gallery was also showcased at the Trust’s Remembrance Festival held at Manor School Sports College on 16th November.
