Our elephant has been designed to inspire creativity, demonstrate inclusion and emphasize togetherness. It was important to us to allow all children and staff to contribute and feel included. All the squares have been joined together like a patchwork quilt with the stitching that holds us as a school and community together.
All the children have designed a square which includes pictures, patterns, colour and line and they all painted their designs onto the finished piece. Each child has had free reign over their design so that they can reflect their individuality and personality. We have included elements of the school curriculum, the village signs, school logo and Academy badge to demonstrate how we all work together but can all stand out.
We have had a competition to draw the trunk design and we have also added an element of humour by adding mice around the feet of the elephant.
