Pupils of city school enjoy a week of art and fun
PUPILS at a city primary school put their artistic skills to the test with a week of activities.
The youngsters at St Andrews Primary School in Citadel Road even created a massive mosaic mural which will take pride of place in the school playground.
Sasha Keaty, arts co-ordinator and foundation stage teacher, said the art and religious education week was helped by 15 students from Plymouth University, as well as visiting artists and parents.
"We had a puppet show come to the school and the children in Foundation Year 1 and 2 made their own puppets," she said.

The Year 3 and 4 children looked at the Union Street Regeneration Project and painted pictures of the street.
Meanwhile, the Year 5 children went to St Andrews Church and made their own stained glass windows.
"Year 6 went to the synagogue and put on a Victorian performance show for our neighbours at Wesley Court and Age Concern," Ms Keaty added.
"The Foundation children had their parents in as well helping – it was lots of mess and chaos but so much fun.
"The artist Jane Stevens asked the children to draw pictures of what St Andrews school meant to them.
"She took their ideas and interpreted them into the mural.
"The flowers, the lighthouse and the words were the children's and the images of the children on the mural were direct from their drawings.
"It will be hung in the playground on the main wall for all the children to see."
