Lower Darwen Primary School, Lancashire

Linking with art and history, pupils explored the architecture of their local area through art work, photography and written pieces.

Working with members of the local community, the school children considered how buildings and their features define an area, making it recognisable and pleasant to live in. The school and school grounds, local church and sculpture park, were all visited, along with a wide range of other buildings. This gave them a holistic understanding of the area, and pride in their community.

The outputs formed an exhibition to celebrate where the children live. One local resident said, ‘It makes you really look at the local area. I’ve loved looking at this work and I will be finding these features around the place now.’
