Little Snoring Primary School

Children at Little Snoring were introduced to carved wooden artefacts from Papua New Guinea, which led to a whole day of exercises and activities including outdoor work with an artist. In conclusion, links were made with the stone and wood carvings at the local church, thought to be 'every bit as special' as Papua New Guinean carving.An important theme at Little Snoring was the difficulty of taking pupils on local exploratory walks, for example to the local church to study the history and carvings. This was due to heavy goods vehicles, travelling to and from the nearby carrot factory, and footpaths not being adequate. The wood carvings from Papua New Guinea however were inspiring enough to encourage the school to find solutions to this surprising rural difficulty.
