Harford Manor School hosted an art exhibition at the school as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Arts Festival Open Studios event. The exhbition included work from pupils they had produced from items that would usually be thrown away as part of their Recycyling and Green Issues topic. There was a mixture of individual pieces, class collages and whole school collaborations on show, including a giant jellyfish made from old plastic packaging! Classes took the time to conduct some art appreciation work critiquing the pieces on display.

Year 3 at Kenninghall Primary School have raised £631.26 for the World Land Trust's 'Buy an Acre' project. Following a story and a discussion about global warming, the children were inspired to take action. They raised money through a bake sale, a dress down day, a stall at the local church fete and donations from family and friends. The money will protect six and a quarter acres of rainforest from future destruction.
