On the surface, everyday life could seem calm and reliably familiar but far below the outer crust, planet Earth tells a story of epic proportions!
Join year 3&4 in celebrating their latest exhibition in #TAG – The Art Gallery at Gayhurst School. Discover children’s creative take on a planet in flux from shifting tectonic plates to active volcanoes. Enjoy artworks which respond to movement and others which capture energy in a frozen sculptural form!

It was exciting when I made the first piece [wax sculpture] because I was really proud of myself for creating something I had never done before! – Keira, 3L
“When the hot wax exploded out of the cup, it looked just like a volcano erupting!” Rashan, 3L
“I liked how we approached the project step by step and worked together as a class. It was very interesting.” Haley, 4D
“I think it’s cool how the separate paintings will come together to make one.” Natty, 4J
