"SATURN"

This is a pane made by a group of Y6 children to be part of a Legacy Window, to mark their transition from Primary School. The theme of the window is space, as we were lucky enough have Dr Thirsk, a real astronaut visit us. This group of 10/11 yr old work on Saturn, they carefully selected the glass they wanted for their design, in the colour of their background glass they wanted to show that this was moving into deeper space. They used frit to show the particles that make up Saturns rings. The children included a range of space craft, shooting stars, wormholes and swirling vortex and undiscovered planet in the bottom left corner!
