ANTHONY Gormley’s famous work made up of 40,000 small terracotta figures was reproduced by talented Portsmouth infants.

Almost 300 pupils at College Park Infants in North End produced a clay figure each to make their own version of Field for the British Isles (pictured).

It formed the centrepiece of their spectacular art exhibition which involved drawing, painting and creating sculptures alongside students from the University of Portsmouth, South Downs College and Mayfield School.

Headteacher Debra Anderson said: ‘It was a fabulous week. While we focus on raising standards in the basic skills of literacy and numeracy it is important to have a breadth of curriculum which encompasses the arts.

‘The children were inspired and produced work of a very high quality. There was a real buzz around the whole school.’
