In the Jungle the Mighty Jungle @ ST Nicholas Primary School

Pupils at St Nichols Primary School in Beverley have been busy working a long term project that has seen them created some giant sculptures for their garden.

The project entitled In the Jungle the Mighty Jungle has challenged students at the school in many different ways while teaching them a range of skills.

Deputy Head Teacher Stuart Richardson speaking to HU17.net about the project explained;

“For the past six weeks the children have been working this project to create a sculpture based an animal that you would find in the Amazon Rain Forrest.”

“It has been a great project from everyone involved encompassing Art, Computing, Science, Geography and Science.”

“They have learnt different writing techniques through writing stories and even the letters sent out to parents to inviting them to come into the school.”

“The children have studied animal habitats and learnt about deforestation and the impact it has on the environment and also done lots of work on the computers to plan their work.”

After researching their animals the children using willow, masking tape paper mach and mod rock crafted their amazing creations.

To finish them off they were painted with fluorescent paint and a pattern applied to give them quirky finish before they were placed in the garden.

Some of the animals created include a Ant, Crocodile,  Butterfly and Fish which have a added a real splash of colour to garden.

Around 20 parents got their chance to see their work in the garden at a special viewing organised by the youngsters.
