During Arts Week, the children at Trotts Hill were very busy getting work ready for our Art Exhibition! The exhibition will feature framed work that every child has made, and will help to raise money for Arts resources for our school. Each child also made a butterfly to go around our new 'Dream Big' mural in the Butterworth Gallery.

Butterfly Mural

The Creative Crew, Mrs Spendlove and Mrs Purdham have been very busy making a beautiful butterfly mural in the Butterworth Gallery. This is linked to our school's 'Dream Big' focus - the quote reads 'until you spread your wings you have no idea how far you can fly'. During Arts Week, every child in the school will also be a making their own butterfly to go around the mural, so that everyone in our school community will have made their own unique contribution to this piece of art.
