PARENTS, pupils and staff unleashed their creative side to transform a Sheffield school hall into an art studio.

Paper plants, painted butterflies and custom-made creatures were crafted by youngsters, mums, dads and teachers at Limpsfield Junior School, Brightside.

Their handiwork, which took place over a week, culminated in a ‘magical garden’ art installation.

John Bainbridge, headteacher, said: “We have a lot of staff interested in art and we wanted to do something to get the children excited, but would also involve mums and dads.

“The whole school – all 238 pupils – got involved and we had 100-plus parents come in over the week.

“The pupils found it so exciting to be working with parents and they got a lot of enjoyment out of it too. It was very positive for everyone.”
