FASHIONABLE pupils at a primary school in St Albans created their own recyclable outfits last week.

Garden Fields school pupils were challenged to create a garment out of bin liners or newspaper last Thursday as part of their Mouldable Materials week.

One boy and one girl from each class were chosen to parade their winning designs during the afternoon's assembly and some of the most creative costumes included a paper sombrero and a dress made from shredded newspaper.

The children also enjoyed a visit from Michael Hardy, a professional sculptor and potter, who helped them create their own clay faces over the course of the week.

Year 5 teacher Becky Hyland, who helped organise the week, said that everyone had a great time and added: "The children were very creative and original in the way they used the materials. A great sense of fun, creativity and achievement was had by all.
