Schoolchildren got a taste of traditional native American culture when they built their own totem pole.

Crafty pupils from Montagu Full Service School, in Cowgate, Newcastle, carved and painted the totem pole as part of an environmental fun day organised by Newcastle's Play and Youth Service yesterday.

The 12ft pole was placed three feet into the ground when the paint dried in the environment garden at Montagu School.

As well as the pole, wooden sculptures were carved by children aged between eight and 19, with adults on hand to operate heavy machinery.

Youngsters also took part in activities such as making birdboxes.
