This is our Big Crib which was exhibited in the church over Christmas.
Each class made some of the characters, based on the work of famous artists.
Willow Class (Nursery and Reception) made the angel and baby, in the style of Barbara Hepworth's sculptures:
Lime Class (Years 1 and 2), made Mary and Joesph, based on the ancient statues on Easter Island:
Sycamore Class (Years 3 and 4) made the Wise Men, in the style of Giocometti:
Chestnut Class (Years 5 & 6) made the Shepherds, based on Antony Gormley's sculptures, wrapping sticky paper around children in the class as models for the body shapes:
The Big Crib was admired by members of the community who attended the Community Carol Service on the Sunday before Christmas.
