Creative Dorridge pupils get im'paw'tant message across in The Big Sleuth

Solihull Editorial 20th Jun, 2017   0

CREATIVE pupils at Dorridge Primary School will be asking visitors to Paws for Thought in The Big Sleuth with their bear.

The young designers armed deputy Headteacher Mel Green with paw prints and a whole load of quotes about what is important to them to decorate a giant bear with.

Paws for Thought is set to be on display at The Core for ten weeks this summer between July and September.

The Big Sleuth will see bear sculptures taking residence all over Birmingham and Solihull decorated by schools, artists and community groups over the summer before they are autioned off to raise funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The children were also set homework to design a smaller bear cub with the winner from each class bringing their design to life on a mini bear sculpture.

Mel said: “The whole school have taken part to design paw prints for the bear sculpture using the school colours with the school logo in pride of place on the front of the bear.

“The paw prints represent the learning journey the children take throughout the school with quotes from the children written on to the bear which reflect what the children think is im’paw’tant in our world.”
