An extra-terrestrial army of ink aliens, junk UFOs and button and pipe cleaner Martians invaded Cromer Junior School before the half-term holiday, at an annual event aimed at celebrating youngsters’ creativity.

Now in its tenth year, Live Arts Week kicked off with photogram workshops run by the school’s artist in residence Kate Munroe.

Pupils also had a chance to create paper and paint star constellations, make space-themed pictures hammered into sheets of tin, design planet mobiles and dream up alien beings put together from buttons, polystyrene balls and coloured beads.

The event culminated in an exhibition for parents and friends in the school hall, with a selection of work also put on show at Cromer parish hall, where it one first prize in the schools section of Cromer Carnival’s annual art exhibition.

Cromer Junior School Year 3 teacher and art co-ordinator Rosie Church said pupils had responded enthusiastically to this year’s space theme, also benefiting from working outside the classroom environment with different teachers and age groups.

“Live Arts Week is one of the things that sticks in the minds of our Year 6 pupils as they take away so much from it,” Miss Church added. “And, when they give their leaving presentations, they always say that it is one of the most enjoyable and memorable weeks of their time here.”
