Clapgate Primary School create commemorative stamps of HM Queen Elizabeth II

Clapgate Primary School Arts Council wanted to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II by asking all children from EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) to Year 6 to create an individual stamp that would combine collectively to create a whole school project of remembrance and thanks.

The stamps are a celebration of the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II. All the children at Clapgate had time to reflect, talk and share stories of our late Queen. The children used many of the main elements of art including colour, line, pattern, texture and value.

The commemorative stamps are on display in the main school hall. The Arts council are very proud of how the project has come together and think that the final display is a fitting tribute to our late Queen Elizabeth II.
