Children at a Wymondham primary school have created an exhibition about emotions.

Ashleigh Primary School and Nursery runs a “social and emotional” programme called Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies, or PATHS.

Danni Lacey-Scane, assistant headteacher, said: “It is a whole school approach to learning about and managing our emotions in a positive manner.”

Each class selected a different emotion and then explored it through a relevant artist to inspire them to create their own pieces of art in a range of mediums, including sculpture and graffiti.

On Wednesday Ashleigh Primary will hold a PATHS recruitment event for people across Norfolk to showcase the school’s success with the programme.

PATHS art exhibition will be held at the school from Monday 12 through to Wednesday 14 March from 3.15pm to 4.30pm.
