The BBC had us all in stitches

Our little bit of sewing (1m x 1m) is part of a special 130 metre-long tapestry which tells the story of the River Thames and is now on view at St Paul's Cathedral and into the summer months. A group of deaf children from Yr 5 & 6 went to the official unveiling and got a chance to be interviewed for a BBC report. They also met the Right Reverend Michael Colclough of St Paul's.

Meridian's Stitch in Time

How did you come up with the idea of the Snorgh?

Just one of the questions, we fired at "The Snorgh and the Sailor" author, Will Buckingham, when he came to open our Celebrating 2012 exhibition. School council members took him on a tour of all the work completed by classes over recent months, which celebrates key moments so far in 2012.

As well as celebrating our work around the Royal Borough, Jubilee and countdown to the Olympics, the display shows the process involved in creating our own Snorgh stories. Will was extremely impressed by how we much we had all been inspired by the characters he had created to produce such a fantastic range of work.

The Celebrating 2012 exhibition will be open until Monday, 16th July - the best times to visit are between 8.45-9.30am and from 3.15-4.00pm. Please come along and see for yourselves. We look forward to welcoming you.
