Whitley Chapel winners at County Show!
 
We entered the Schools' art competition for the first time at the Northumberland County Show this year. The topic was 'Visions of Roman Northumbria'. Class 2 chose to do one large picture with mosaic. The boys researched buildings and artefacts from our local area and got pictures from the Internet to help inspire them. With the help of Miss Harrison they made the bridge at Corbridge, a Roman sandal and coin from Vindolanda, and a Roman shield. They finished off their picture with a map of the Roman Wall.
It was really exciting on Show day to see that they had won a First Prize rosette and a Special award for being the best exhibit. It was a great achievement considering several of the other exhibits were done by older pupils. 
Well done Class 2 - you did us proud!
