school school schools

So a flurry of schools means I have neglected my blog but also I have my leg in a cast so once home I have collapsed on the sofa, leg up and promptly fallen asleep! Tired is not the word. 

Well lets see what have I missed blogging......
I had 3 days in Shevington Primary School working on a clay mural of Shevington in 1814 for the schools 200th Birthday. Then on to Blacko Primary School who came to the Mill for a day of art activity with Karen of Redcurrant Glass and me. So thumb pot animals or pets were explored though there are some strange pets in them there hill. Then we had a Well Being Twilight at Marsden Primary School with some beautiful T-light holders too.

And then on to Aughton Town Green Primary School in Aughton nr Ormskirk and a weeks worth of designing and creating a mosaic to celebrate their 50th birthday too.

So less of the chat and on to the pics




I stood on a chair and still couldn't get it all in!

So next stop is the pictures from Shevington's mural. Each class worked on a section of the mural such as farmland and jobs the children did such as the long summer holidays to help collect the crops. Another class looked at the what jobs and how they lived on the canal. The mines were very important too and the children were used to push the carts of coal along the shafts.

And last but not least the fabulous t- lights from the teachers at Marsden Primary School.




Oh and this is my new cast.....
5 weeks and we shall see if I need surgery or not. Cross fingers not!
