The beauty of wildlife was captured by pupils at Rushmere Hall Primary School when they designed their entry for the Pigs Gone Wild art trail.

The pig, which hasn’t been officially named yet but is nicknamed Blossom, was designed and painted by more than 35 children at the school, based on the theme ‘Nature’s Gone Wild’ put forward by Year 4 pupil Lana Innis.

The design aimed to reflect the school’s wildlife garden, ancient orchard and pond area.

Teaching assistant Carrie Beaumont, who led the project with art co-ordinator Lauren Fleming, said: “We have been absolutely blown away by their enthusiasm. They have all loved it and have commented on it as [the design] has been growing.”

The Pigs Gone Wild art trail will run across Ipswich town centre and the waterfront next month in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice.
