CREATIVE Branscombe Primary pupils showed they have an artistic flair during an Art Attack day this week.

The arty pupils took part in a range of activities on Tuesday which were designed to raise their awareness of recycling as well as teaching them how important sight is.

The youngsters were allowed to wear non school uniform for the day and they each gave a donation in aid of Action for Blind People- they raised around £35.

The younger children made scaled down clay models of themselves while the older pupils created models with an Egyptian theme.

Staff and pupils worked together to make a frieze depicting an underwater scene using newspapers and hand printing.

The piece de resistance was a woven wall hanging made from recycled materials which will be on display at the Branscombe Art Show at Easter in the village hall.

Mrs Newman, who organised the day, said: "It has been a brilliant morning and the children and staff have had a wonderful time."

Mr Swait, the newly appointed Acting Head Teacher praised the staff and pupils for their creativity and imagination.
