In May Class 4 at St Marys C of E School Penzance worked with artist Amanda Lorens to produce a fascinating animation called ‘Every Photo Tells a Story’, cleverly weaving archive and present-day photos with drawn animation and newly collected oral history audio footage to tell an imaginative story based on real events.  Class 4 teacher Nicki Bonell said:

'Our children loved being involved in the project, which was creative, fun and fully inclusive. They learnt about the history of Jubilee Pool and gained skills in animation. All the children genuinely surprised themselves with the quality of their art work. It will be great to take them to the gallery to see their work on display as it will really boost their confidence.'
