Thomas Arnold – Library
Thomas Arnold is a Primary school in Dagenham with an inclusive approach that focuses on the wellbeing and progress of every child. They are committed to providing a safe place for learning through the application of their positive behaviour system.
We were delighted to be contacted by the school to design and install some inspiring Wall Art for their new school Library. Naturally, the focus of our design was on a rich tapestry of characters, storylines, quotes and images from some of the most well known and well loved children’s books. We wanted to make the Library Wall Art as visually engaging as possible, bearing in mind that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual.
The school Library’s vibrant, colourful walls and funky soft furnishings provide a playful backdrop for our school Wall Art installation. We were keen to capture some of the most prolific moments from popular children’s stories, as well as memorable quotes from authors like JK Rowling, Dr Seuss and Ted Hughes. Most importantly, we wanted to use Wall Art to inspire pupils to want to spend time in the Library and encourage them to read more.
Some of the stories, quotes and authors featured include:
- “You are who you choose to be” – an inspiring quote taken from The 1968 Science Fiction book, The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
- A stunning nod to Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, which brings life and movement to the wall by showing a brightly hued parrot in mid-flight, as well as the classic white sails of a sailboat.
- James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl is another classic children’s book brought to life on the walls of the school’s Library.
- We had to include a quote from the wonderful Dr Seuss, of course!
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”.
The school were very excited to welcome published author Ann Stairmand to open the new Library. Pupils now have an inviting space in which to read, learn and escape to another world through the power of their imagination!
