This 2 sq. metre mosaic panel is situated by the Nursery school entrance. Strand on the Green is renowned for its beautiful footpath which runs along the bank of the Thames and is lined with imposing 18th century houses and pubs. All the children from Nursery to Year 2 took part in the project.
The children were initially asked to think about the local environment and to draw relevant pictures. They learned how their pictures were used to form the whole design and how it was made into a mosaic using hundreds of pieces of glass or ceramic tiles.
The mosaic workshops were specially adapted to suit this young age group to ensure maximum learning and a safe working environment.
The mosaic was unveiled by the world famous artist Sir Peter Blake.
