Whitchurch Primary School and Weston-under-Penyard Primary School, near Ross-on-Wye, have come together and are now part of the River Wye Federation.

Pupils at each school have been learning about the importance of the River Wye and its inhabitants. As part of this, students, in class groups, made big fishes out of clay. Each pupil designed an individual fish scale to decorate the big fish with.

All students also made their own small river creatures, with many making fishes. One pupil even made a penguin.

Each clay creature was glazed and finished in an oven, and the schools are delighted to have had them returned as finished ornaments.See this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a Digital Edition now.
