There were some fishy goings-on in Huntingdonshire last week when children crafted their own colourful fish to help them understand the importance of sharing.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Bury CofE Primary School used pieces of willow, greaseproof paper, glue and paints to create one large rainbow fish and 30 smaller ones.

They were assisted by artist James York Moore, who trained at the Cambridge School of Art and is a former Huntingdonshire headteacher.

Jeremy Summerell, headteacher at the school, said he had invited an artist to the school to help inspire the children. He said: "Art and crafts is a fantastic way of allowing youngsters to explore their creative talents."

The creative lessons were also aimed at helping the 10 and 11-year-olds understand the morals behind the Rainbow Fish story, which stresses the importance of sharing.
