Young patients in Barnet Hospital’s Treasure Island Ward have been decorating the corridor they share with the Children’s Outpatients Department in preparation for a summer that Britain will never forget.
The walls are now adorned with a display created in partnership between the Discovery Bay classroom and the playteam. The patriotic imagery combines icons of the London landscape – such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the London Eye – with flags from around the world, and the Olympic Rings hanging from the ceiling.
Susan Horton, Play Specialist, said: “It was a lovely ongoing project to have fun and explore different ways of creating visual art, with fabrics and models as wells as paint.”
Helen Daly, Ward Teacher, said: “It’s been an opportunity for children to understand the significance of what this summer means to our country.”
