Description

This large mosaic was produced by all year 5 children as part of their studies about the 1950′s.(funded by a national lottery heritage bid) They researched the era which included holding a coffe morning for members of the community and asking questions about peoples memories of the time. The children used the internet to find images, made some drawings and decided what they would like to use. Children made drawings for the layout although help was given to draw their ideas together and children enlarged their chosen drawings brilliantly.

All 31 children worked on both the drawings and the actual mosaic during shool time. Parents were also invited one evening after school to take part and the children were encouraged to show them how to mosaic. The children also grouted the piece.
