Hand-powered albatross unveiled at Stanley Primary School, Teddington
Children at Stanley Primary in Teddington pose with Flappatross - a hand-pedalled albatross they made from recycled plastic.
Pupils cut out feather shapes from plastic waste over half term and were joined by the EcoTales team at their school this week.
The plastic albatross - which the children have suggested naming Flappatross, Big Al or Stanley - has been made as part of the school’s festival art trail at Orleans House on May 5.
Erin Goodwin from birch class said: “I think her name should be Liberty because animals should be free.”
A number of children from each year have been recorded reading an accompanying poem Dear Albatross and the bird will be powered by a hand pedal and the poem will play during the art trail.
