Pupils from Nelmes Primary School, in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, worked with mosaic artist Paul Siggins last week to create the work.

The montage was created over three days from drawings the children produced showing how they travel to school, enjoy sport, their school logo, and their surrounding area.

Paul Siggins said: “It was wonderful to be invited back to Nelmes Primary school. Seeing the children’s joy at the work they produced is something I’ll never tire of – the mosaic they create will be there for years to come to be enjoyed by many.”

Fiona Siggins, from The Mosaic Studio, said: “There’s never a dull moment working with young students to create a mosaic. The wonderful thing about bringing art directly into schools - particularly creating a lasting legacy artwork, is the wonder on young students faces when we explain what they’re making that day will last for 50 or even 100 years!
