Nature inspired beautiful works of art by pupils at Stansted's Magna Carta Primary Academy.

By learning how to be resourceful while doing school work from home, children made paint out of berries, beetroot and mustard powder and used nature's cast-offs to take part in an art day.

They could use anything from nature to create their own masterpieces, experimenting with how to make paint.

Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “We wanted to create a day where teachers did not upload any maths or English lessons to our online programme and, instead, freed up families to create art.

“We decided on the nature theme because over the last few months we've all slowed down a little and started noticing things in nature that we wouldn’t normally notice. Most families go on a daily walk and so we wanted to marry this up with the art."

He added: “We also wanted to remind children and parents that there's more to education than maths and English; art is also important. We hoped that creating nature-inspired art would be a positive thing for their mental health."
