Lakeside School Project – Stage 3

Lakeside Schools 50th anniversary wall hanging is progressing well. The centre panel containing the anniversary logo now has all the text fixed in place.

And the reception classes have made their contribution by hand printing on fabric.

Today, we have started on the decade panels and year 6 have been busy constructing their panel which documents key events from the current decade.

From rough drafts drawn up by the pupils the focus was on the London 2012 Olympics, the Queens Jubilee and the Royal Wedding.

The pupils involved were initially keen to trace their pictures onto fabric and thought it was a great idea to use the light from the windows!

They then coloured their images with fabric crayons and pens. Colours used for Wenlock reflected the colours that games makers wore during the Olympics and Clare was on hand modelling her games makers outfit to help the process!

And, there was some careful sewing to make sure that Wenlock’s Olympic flame stayed in place!


Pam did a brilliant job helping with the making of Olympic medals

And Clare donated one of her Olympic badges!

Everyone did such a good job that it wasn’t too long before the panel could be put together. A spot of ironing to hold things in place.

By the end of the afternoon the main parts were assembled making a very colourful panel, which we are sure will be much admired in the future.
