Ellingham Schools’ art exhibition proves a big hit
Two primary schools near Bungay proved quite a draw as they threw open their doors to show off their artwork.
Ellingham VC Primary School and Woodton Primary School are taking part in the Norfolk Open Studios, which is part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
The idea of the scheme is to help and support artists in opening up their studios. Schools joined the scheme last year.
Pauline McGowan, headteacher of Ellingham and Woodton Primary Partnership, said: 'It has gone amazingly well. We are really, really pleased.
'We have had a steady stream of people through the morning at Ellingham.
'There were amazing comments.'
She said they had one email from a Norwich art teacher who said he had never seen work as good by primary school children.

'We feel that by doing this, it will give our children the wider audience for their art that it is sometimes difficult to achieve.'
There are displays in the hall, classrooms and the corridors of the school as well as students doing art and craft work in class and in clubs.
The work includes paintings, drawings, textile work, computer generated art and animation.
Woodton Primary School will be open today between 1.30pm and 3pm.
Ellingham VC Primary School will be open tomorrow and Friday between 1.30pm and 3pm.
