David Livingstone Academy have some wonderful class names such as ‘Explorers’, ‘Artists’, ‘Scientists and ‘Pioneers’ so it seemed an ideal opportunity to design a mural using the children’s drawings about their class names. We started with a map of the world which was populated with these images and then during Arts Week in May 2013 we made out mural.

Stencils on the boards with chalk outline

KS2 children made stencils from their drawings and then transferred them onto prepared boards.

Years 5 and 6 painted the detailed images and the younger years painted the background.

Once the mural is up in the KS2 playground I hope to have some pictures to show of it in situ.
