A Chalfonts art teacher has praised her Year 7 students for the creativity they’ve shown with a recent project.
Abigail Bishop is a student teacher currently studying her PGCE at Chalfonts Community College. She recently set her pupils a task to create artwork using painted tissue paper and inspired by the Eric Carle children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Abigail said: “The final project looks amazing; they’ve all done a great job. We are so proud as a department and the students are very proud of their work as a Year 7 group. This is a very colourful, happy, joyful project that involves both art and literacy.
“Throughout the project, the students have been talking about the project even outside of their art lessons and during other activities within school. I feel all of the students are proud of their final piece.
“I was so happy to find a way to combine both literacy and be inclusive as well.”
Abigail hopes to make a book compiling all of the pages that her pupils have created.
