Children from Fairstead Primary School, in King's Lynn, walked through the Wilderness Dreaming sculpture to learn about the materials used.

Year six teacher Lisa King said children are inspired and excited by real-life experiences, adding: 'The children absolutely loved the trip, they were amazed by what they saw. We have carried out quite a bit of work in the lead up to the trip and so for them to actually see the sculptures, it brought their work to life.
