Tour of Britain 2010: Buxton School Living Art Project

The living bicycle wheel!
A collaboration involving all the children of this school (120).
Over four sessions, working one class at a time (including Reception, all the way up to Yr 6), the children rehearsed the moves to be the components of a revolving wheel. i.e. the hub, spokes, rim and tyre, with the grass of the track too. Children wore colour-coded baseball hats, so that when seen from above, their hats made the wheel imagery stronger.
The children in the 'hub' wore red hats, spokes and rim children wore white, tyre children wore black, and the grass children were green.
Finally, the whole performance was filmed from the tower of the neighbouring church tower, and can be seen on the following clip
