SCHOOL pupils went to the Tate Modern gallery in London to display a creative arts project they had developed.

The children from Ysgol Deganwy joined youngsters from 32 Welsh schools in attending the ‘Five Creative Habits of Mind’ event.

It celebrated the success of a new pupil-led creative learning programme, the Lead Creative Schools Scheme, which puts creativity at the heart of education in Wales.

Wendy Williams, deputy headteacher of Ysgol Deganwy said the school took 15 children aged six to seven and their parents on the two-day trip.

“This was the first time some of the children had visited London and were wide-eyed in amazement at seeing the Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge and other sites,” she added.

“In Tate Modern they demonstrated a project they had developed before Christmas with two North Wales artists Gai Toms and Gwion Aled, which is based upon a performance with songs in Welsh.

“While there they wrote another one about London helped by Gai Toms and Gwion, and had the opportunity to use a green screen to make a video of their project.”
