Schoolchildren and their families enjoyed a day of art and craft activities at a primary school in Chinnor.

St Andrew’s C of E primary school held their fifth annual family craft day with activities including face painting, wood turning and fabric painting.

It concluded an arts week where children’s art and photographs were displayed in a special exhibition in the school.

Staff, governors and parents were all involved in running the workshops, organising refreshments and setting up craft stalls for the visitors.

Headteacher Wendy Heritage said: “The idea behind the family craft day has always been to invite families to come together and have an enjoyable day out participating in fun activities.

“Each year the number of families taking part has increased and we have already been asked if we shall be doing it next year.

“The answer to that is definitely!”

All money raised from the event enables the school to invite an artist to work on a project with the children.

Mrs Heritage said: “Last year, Anita Osborne, a local willow weaver, worked with all our children to create a willow entrance and fence for our spiritual garden. “This year, we are hoping to create a whole school mosaic depicting St Andrew.”
