Made by pupils from Huntingdon Academy, with teacher Hazel Vaughan and artist Sian W Taylor.

Challenge Boxes, Year 4, and Challenge Boards, Year 2, reflecting their experience of the space.

Explore the challenges set by the pupils, admire, and laugh with their beautiful silliness. Enjoy deciphering the tasks and rising to the challenge.
