Lowestoft’s Poplars Primary School pupils create Narnia and Jungle Book scenes
A Lowestoft school was magically transformed this week into a fantastic world full of weird and wonderful creatures as pupils showed off their creative skills.
Using the theme '3D and Big', the pupils recreated the wintry world of Narnia, based on the book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, made their own Jungle Book scenes and brought to life the tale of the Gingerbread Man.
Among the other colourful displays was one featuring giant pigs from the classic Three Little Pigs fairytale, another with huge bears from Goldilocks and the Three Bears and one based on Jack and the Beanstalk.
About 500 children took part in drawing, designing and making the displays, which were being officially unveiled to proud parents today.
They will be able to see how pupils have embraced a recycling theme – using plastic to create trees and flowers outside the school.
Children also used their maths skills to help draw up their designs and work out how big things needed to be, especially for the Jack and the Beanstalk display.
The use of books and fairytales for the artwork also tied in with National Book Day yesterday.

Denes High School helped out during the week, with Sally Erb and Julie Mayo from its art department and students offering advice and help.
The high school also provided its minibus to pick up materials for the '3D and Big' art works.
