The KS1 team were lucky enough to be able to host Kate Green, an artist working with Newton Abbot museum, for a day.

Kate is working on display materials for the new Newton Abbot museum and was seeking ideas from local schools. Our local museum is a very special place for us and we value our ongoing relationship so we were delighted to be asked to be involved.

The children were given the design brief of creating banners which could be hung outside the museum to provide information and encourage visitors to come inside. Some of the ideas that  they came up with were incredible.

We cannot wait to see some of their influences turning up in the finished banners.

A big THANK YOU to Kate and the museum staff from all those in years 1 and 2 for the fantastic experience they were provided with.
