Herringham pupils get creative...

Pupils at Herringham Primary Academy recently enjoyed a special craft day with the Essex Wildlife Trust, learning how to create bird sculptures which will be displayed at the Thurrock Thameside Nature Park in Stanford le Hope. The project was designed especially for gifted and talented art students across the school and was linked to our brilliant natural environment (birds).

Bee Creative delivered the workshops and were very impressed by the pupil’s enthusiasm for the wildlife around them and their engagement with the day. They commented “Thank you so much for having us, both Sophie and myself really enjoyed our day with you. It’s always a pleasure to work with such polite and well-behaved children, and we were very impressed with the standard of work, you have some serious artistic talent there!” they continued “I loved the way the children were so keen to show their classmates their creations, and hopefully they will take a trip to the Thurrock Thameside Centre with their families to see everything on display soon.”

The Essex Wildlife Trust was established in 1959 and has grown from strength to strength, always striving to protect wildlife for the future and for the people of Essex.
