Using a number of small images to make one large picture was the focus of an art project at St Nicolas School.

With the help of artist Nicola Prince, who visited on May 13, the pupils at the Rectory Road primary school worked together to create a collage for the Queen’s 90th birthday party.

The students had to create small stamp designs in a variety of media which were then placed onto a larger canvas banner around a silhouette of the Queen’s head made out of penny coins.

Headteacher Clare Wagstaff said: “The children loved the task and I am sure you will agree that it looks fabulous. I wonder what Her Majesty will make of it. The banner will be hung next to the year two classroom. When you are in school please stop and admire it.”
