What would happen if you gave some under 11 year old's a selection of gloss paint and told them to decorate a playground wall?.......well unsupervised it would probably look like an explosion in a paint factory but with the guidance of 2 fab teachers (Jenny, and Terri) the end result was amazing.
The children really loved it and got very creative indeed, the end wall was drawn by me and painted by the children, I will pop back sometime this week and black out line the insects to show their features.
Whenever requested I would conjure up whatever insect they required, bee or a worm or a dragonfly to join the garden of beautiful flowers that were completely their own creations.
The children see the wall every playtime and get great satisfaction in talking about their artistry with their friends, perhaps next year we can add too it and end up with a wall chocka block with flowers and mini beasts.....
This is Jamie's school
and straight opposite the school is St Barnabas Church.......
I am not really a church goer but I can appreciate the workmanship involved with these structures especially as my grandpa Tucker use to build leaded lights (windows). My brother use to go to my grandpa's workshop when he was about 15 and help him, when he left school he went and worked with grandpa full time and has become a very gifted craftsman himself.
The PTA are organising a Christmas concert with Sherborne Town Band and we are holding it in the church this year, I think it will be a wonderful evening in a beautiful setting. Mum (the retired florist) has agreed to come and do a beautiful pedestal arrangement with a Christmas feel, so I will start coveting anyone owning a holly tree with some berry on it!
These are the thatched cottages next to the church, we live 2 villages away from Queen Camel as house prices in this particular village are a little out of our league and personally if I were to spend that amount of money on a house I would want land and a private driveway.
I hope you enjoyed a look around my local area...
