Manea primary pupils paint a mural

Children at Manea Primary School have been brightening up their playground.

Together they planned, designed and created artwork to paint a mural in the school playground, to liven up their break times.

Every child from the school took part and it took three days of painting to complete the artwork, with the help of parents and grandparents.

The project was commissioned by head Pam Longstaff and school governors.

They wanted the children to be able to create a space that was their own and inspired them to play, imagine and interact.
