Pre-Prep 4-7
Posted on: February 10th 2021

At the end of January, Head of Pre-Prep, Miss Callow, set pupils an art challenge to create either a piece of art of a bird they would like to see in their gardens, or a piece of art showing the world their perspective of the bird.

After thinking long and hard about which bird he would like to create, Reception pupil Ben, who also recently completed his first ever climb and raised over £2,500 for the Bishop’s Stortford Food Bank, was inspired to make a giant model of the Roald Dahl Roly Poly bird.

With the help of his family here and there, Ben completed the project over a few days which involved a lot of painting, gluing, taping and shaping of a variety of materials to create the masterpiece. The bird, which stands at 8 feet tall, now stands proudly in place in the Pre-Prep art gallery!
