It may be hot outside, but that hasn’t stopped Cambridgeshire pupils dreaming up cool ways to decorate the mini moos they’ve adopted as part of a spectacular art event coming to the city next spring.
The Spinney Primary School is one of 15 schools and early years groups that have moo-ved quickly to secure a place on the Cows about Cambridge art trail and entry to the associated Learning Programme.
“The children were very excited to meet the cow and it really inspired them to think about how we will decorate ours next year,” commented Rae Snape, Headteacher of The Spinney Primary School. “We decided to take part in Cows about Cambridge because it will be a great visual way to bring the community together.”
“As well as being a fabulous creative experience, being part of the project will mean the children and their families will learn about our famous cows and the city’s heritage and culture whilst coming together to create a sense of ownership, participation and pride towards the place we live.”
Up to 60 mini moos, representing schools and community groups from across the region, will join some 50 full-size Cow sculptures, sponsored by local businesses, to create a world-class public art project that is guaranteed to become a talking point for the city between 30 March and 6 June 2020.
After the art trail is over, the mini moos will find their forever pastures back at the schools that adopted them. Many of the full-size Cow sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Break.
