Saltaire Primary School works with local artist to produce stunning mural.

Saltaire Primary School in collaboration with Hirst Wood Regeneration Group have produced a stunning mural to celebrate the bi centenary of the opening of the Leeds Liverpool canal.

Year 5  children worked with local artist Sharon Snaylam to research, sketch paint and produce ideas which formed the mural. Historian Liz McIvor from BBC4 talked to the children about life on the canal in the 18th & 19th centuries. The mural will be on display at Hirst Wood Locks as part of the bicentenary celebrations this weekend when the Kennet barge will travel along the canal on its commemorative journey.

Sharon Snaylam can be contacted for similar cross curricular  projects on shez.snaylam@btinternet.com
