LIFE at a playgroup in Thorne has become more colourful for its young members thanks to the work of arty students.

Sixth formers at Trinity Academy responded to a plea from the people who run St Nicholas Church Hall to brighten up the building where a playgroup meets.

Len Taylor, from the church hall steering group, said: “The walls in the hall were a bit dull so I asked Martin Oldknow, who goes to our church and is a governor at the academy, if he could help.”

Mr Oldknow approached the academy with the brief to create artwork around the Bible stories of Noah’s ark and Jonah and the whale.

Sixth form students who spend Wednesday afternoons doing community activities and are also studying A-level art took up the challenge.

Chelsea Holding, aged 17, from Thorne, said: “There were six of us and we split into two groups to work on each piece. We developed the designs from pictures in books, then came together at the end to finish them off.”

Head of art Laura Howlett said: “The students worked very hard on the project, doing it entirely by themselves and alongside their A-level studies.”
