Laxton Junior School � Rolling back the years!

Published Thursday 27th of March 2014 10:24:52 AM

Laxton Junior School, in Oundle, held an Arts� Festival from March 24th to 26th that provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate their 40th Anniversary. The children have been studying each of the decades since the school opened in 1973. They created a �Time Tunnel� the length of the school, which transported them through the last four decades, with photographs of their teachers and press cuttings about note worthy events. They have danced their way through the decades and eaten a 1970s style lunch, they have visited their own �Museum� full of memorabilia and created an Art gallery packed full of their work as well as pictures from the previous decades. They finished the festival �Dressed from the Decades�, as did their teachers!

Headmaster Mark Potter said �The Festival introduced the children to new skills, sculpting with chicken wire and weaving for example, has been a great deal of fun, and a fitting celebration of all that has taken place in the Laxton Junior School community since the school first opened its doors in 1973�.
