ARTIST Rikki Ottis spent three days at Ely's St Mary's School making banners with children who will be joining in September.
The banners are part of a special transition project to help Year 2 children from Spring Meadow Infant and Nursery School starting at the school in the new term.
Headteacher James Hickish said: "This is the second year we have had an artist working with our up-coming Year 3 children and it has been an absolute delight.
"We can't wait for the children to join us, and I think most of them are now feeling much more confident about their move to junior school now that they have spent some time with us."
