Using the local environment as their inspiration, the pupils chose the famous Dunsop Bridge ducks, owls, hares, a kingfisher and trouts to create their designs. Infants and juniors spent weeks to complete the project, under the guidance of Janet Wells, a school governor and local resident.

Headteacher Olga Jackson said: “ The whole school community is delighted with the outstanding artistic work the children produced and is now on display in the village centre.”
