The hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus inspired pupils to create works of art which impressed teachers, family and friends.

Children at St Stephen’s Primary School in Uxbridge Road, Shepherds Bush, based a wide range of work on the painting of the famous junction by LS Lowry which dates back to the 1960s. The activities included 3D model making, painting, creative writing, computer skills and drama workshops by visiting theatre companies.

Parents and friends were invited to an exhibition of the work on Thursday March 19, following the activities the previous week.

The event, which has been going for 14 years, was organised by deputy headteacher Karen Frazer and art, design and technology co-ordinator Peter Cookson.

St Stephen’s headteacher Michael Schum, said: “It’s a whole school event with a lot of really fun learning going on.

“It’s a celebration of the children’s work and the opportunity to share that work with the community.”
