Old Bessie Gets a Makeover
Natalie Sweeney (a local artist) was asked to give the bus a makeover. The children decided that it should be based on story book characters. Natalie discussed the different books and characters with the children. She used lots of spray paint to cover the bigger areas and used stencils for the smaller details. The children in EYFS were lucky enough to watch Natalie work. They asked her lots of questions. They were inspired and painted their own characters in class. Natalie and Mrs Clayton are friends. Mrs Clayton asked Natalie to paint a small yellow heart on the bus. Next time you walk past the bus see if you can see it.
Which is your favourite character? What other character would you have put on the bus?
