Fakenham pupils learn how to be eco friendly through art
An eco art week has been held at a Fakenham school this week to help pupils learn about the importance of being environmentally friendly.
Children at Fakenham Infant and Nursery School have learned about climate change, renewable energy, recycling, how trees produce oxygen and the dangers of rising sea levels.
Artist Liz McGowan and wood carver Pat Willis have been into the school to help the pupils create works of art from recycled materials.
The childrens' work will be displayed in an exhibition at the school for their parents next Thursday and Friday.
Jane Lidstone-Scott, the school's science co-ordinator, said: 'It's been an excellent week. The children have really enjoyed themselves and learned some important lessons about the environment. Many have been taking these important messages home to their parents.'
