Sprowston Junior School

All classes transformed their timetable for gorilla week. Each year group produced a different style piece of artwork from clay gorilla busts to collages to evolution pictures. Children wrote gorilla fact files, persuasive arguements against poaching and a variety of poems using different poetic styles. They linked Anthony Browne’s range of stories into philiosphy sessions. Each child made their own gorilla mask to wear all day and in Friday’s whole school assembly, where they all performed the gorilla ‘Harlem shake’. Every child had the opportunity to design the ‘Wild in Art’ gorilla, for Go Go Gorillas.



Links were also made in maths (gorilla measurements compared to a humans), geography (where gorillas live) and history (how the gorilla trade used to be) and much more…..

The winning designers of the gorilla, also had the chance to visit a few of the artists gorillas displayed at ‘The Space’ and even meet one of the artists!! Which inspired Sprowston Junior School to start their own design!!

‘Hope for Chimanuka’ the gorilla, has been designed by Catarina, Caitlin, Theepan, Holly, Ella, Adam, Anna, Simon and Lucy; our 9 competition winners.They created the designs during our ‘Gorilla Week’. Their designs represented the learning at Sprowston Junior School and what the school means to them. During our ‘Gorilla Week’, they raised enough money to sponsor their own gorillas with Born Free. One of these gorillas is called Chimanuka, so they named their gorilla after him.
