Pupils fish for ideas to refurbish art gallery; Schooltopic.

WHEN Sacred Heart Catholic Primary Sc hool headteacher Helen Quinn challenged pupils to refurbish their art gallery they all took it on board.

The title of the exhibition was the Year of Faith, which has as its symbol a fishing boat.

Everyone started to look for references to boats and water to understand their significance in the story of Christianity - and everything went swimmingly!

Younger pupils read the stories about Noah, Moses and Jonah, while older children did some research into how many of the stories in the New Testament featured fishing boats.

They produced canvases to depict some of the major events in the life of Jesus.

Year 6 became artists themselves and studied paintings by Van Gogh.

Work for the exhibition also included fish poetry, origami boats and close observational drawing of fish.

Artefacts were collected from Chesil Beach in Dorset to add a touch of realism to the art work.

The school has launched the new-look gallery which is open to visitors during school hours.
