IMG_0673This week, Year 6 have been lucky enough to work with Fiona, a textile artist who is based in the Ouseburn Valley.
The children have been working collaboratively to produce two large scale banners; one which celebrates 60 years of Benton Park Primary School and the other one which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Heaton Main Colliery disaster.
Alongside the work with Fiona, the children have also created small personal banners sharing individual successes over their time at primary school.
Take a look at the work in progress!
