Y4KA took part in a virtual workshop with artist Jane McCracken entitled ‘Where did all the animals go?’ In partnership with Born Free,Jane hopes to raise awareness of endangered animals in the hope of preventing extinction.

Mrs Allan’s class focused on species from the Oceania continent and drew their animal using only biro. No pencils or rubbers were allowed! Jane was very impressed with the children’s art work which will form part of a mural, along with other North East schools as well as schools from Kenya, Guyana and California, to be displayed in the Great North Museum in July 2021. It was a fabulous experience for the children who are looking forward to seeing their work displayed.
