Linking with Year 5! Keeping Our Friendships Going!

We’ve been Linking for 3 years! - The Linking Network


Year 5 children from 6 Pendle Primary Schools worked with the artist, Gosha Gibek-Brand, to create an exhibition which explores identity through ‘a cross-community expression in celebration of people, cultures and the local landscape’. Three linking pairs of schools which had already linked for 2 previous years, came together to produce this collaborative artwork which is now on view in Nelson Library and the community space at Systems 3B. As part of the Pendle Festival of Culture, parents were then invited to not only see their children’s artwork, but also to take part in the same workshop with Gosha so that further conversations about identity and community could take place.

To celebrate their achievements in their Year 5 Schools Linking Art Project, the children of Marsden Primary and St Michael’s and All Angels C of E Primary came together one more time to see their artwork proudly displayed and to enjoy another day together. They had a fun session in Nelson Library, encouraging the children to make use of this local facility, which involved dressing up and sharing the joy of smelling old books!
