    A very beautiful creation, with so much effort going into Joshua’s Pond. When the sun catches the mirror moon it lights up the whole mosaic..We are all very proud of the Mosaic and everyone involved.

The project was inspired by Joshua, one of our pupils who was leaving the school at the end of year 6. Joshua and his parents wanted to give the school a present as a thankyou for his time with us.

Joshua has cerebral palsy and is registered blind so he really liked the idea of a mosaic which would be very tactile. He had the idea of a pond with a moon and he and his class came up with the features that were included in the final design which was created by class teacher Laura Latham. It was an important part of the project that everyone in the school took part in making the mosaic, from reception children to the head teacher. It was completed over half a term in spare time, during playtimes and also after school.

The finished mosaic is placed on the wall of the school just by the playground entrance where everyone can see it. The children are often seen touching it and discovering new features they hadn’t spotted before, and every child know which bit they did! It’s a lovely way to remember a very special child who is now getting on brilliantly at his new school.
