This mural was specifically designed to be used by reception and year one children at Tibberton Primary School.
Located in a quiet reading corner of the classroom the mural covers two walls from floor to ceiling and depicts the children’s
favourite characters from books such as Noddy, the Gruffalo, Elmer, the BFG, Tinkerbell, Davey Crockett, Charlie and Lola and the Smartest Giant in Town.
Some of the characters are shown reading their favourite books too. The design includes a number line in the green leaves from 1 to 31 so that the children can count
the days in a month, and the ladybirds climbing the tree have spots that can be used to count from one to ten. 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ shows life-cycle
metamorphosis and amongst the garden birds adorning the branches of the tree on the second wall the leaves are turning brown as autumn arrives and then the leaves
fall during winter and the birds feed on berries. These images and themes are designed to promote conversation between the children about the changing seasons and
the passage of time as well as to help them identify and take an interest in the birds they feed in the school garden and see whilst walking to and from school.
Also included is a measuring line in cms as a height chart painted onto the trouser leg of the Smartest Giant in Town - using blackboard paint for his trousers enables the children to write their names with chalk pens next to their height. The mural also contains a whiteboard which the children can use during their literacy lessons. The mural was designed to encompass many elements of Key Stage One learning, to give children a relaxing and friendly quiet space to read but most of all a piece of artwork to create fun and conversation.
