STUDENTS at Larkfields Junior School got creative during a special Olympic-themed arts and crafts week.

The year six pupils in Nuthall used all sorts of materials to make different Olympic-related models to celebrate the big event, being held in London later this year.

They made flames and torches out of papermache and worked with artist Ian Dearman to make a life-size sculpture of Usain Bolt.

Many other Olympics-related events and activities will be going on in primary and secondary schools across the region in the lead up to the big event this July.
