Colkirk Primary School

A range of exercises were used for this one-day workshop, all of which emphasized pattern and the symbolism of pattern. This open-ended theme allowed pupils to develop their own observations and conversations, for example about the natural environment and what it is like to live in a rural area from a young person's perspective.

Children at Colkirk were introduced to artefacts from Papua New Guinea, leading to a whole day of exercises and activities, including outdoor work with an artist. The day began and ended with consideration of their own culture and rural environment, revealing a wealth of knowledge amongst the children about natural aspects of the countryside.
