Young artists in Bunwell are well and truly into the festive spirit after hosting a wintry art display.

The 75 pupils at Bunwell Primary School, aged from four up to 11, held the mixed-media gallery last week and invited friends and family to come along.

Using paint, pastels, watercolours, chalk and collage materials, the artwork - which was themed around winter - was displayed as a whole and not separated by year group.

It was inspired by a successful exhibition held by reception and year one and two students in October.

Chris Hansford, reception class teacher, said: 'It was great to see so many people from the local community interested and sharing positive comments about the event.'

The galleries will now become a regular feature at the school to promote the importance of art.
