Introducing... Justin beaver

Monday, February 6, 2012

A new sculpture at Arbourthorne Community Primary School was officially unveiled by local MP Meg Munn recently. Already it has been given the nickname ‘Justin Beaver’ by pupils.

Every child at the school took part in a competition to design a sculpture based on the theme of native woodland wildlife, with the help of the city council’s Community Forestry team. The drawings were judged by the Community Forestry team and sculptor Lorraine Bottrill with the winning design of a Beaver being drawn by Year 2 pupil Terrell.  

Meg said:

“It was lovely meeting Terrell and seeing his winning design at the school. All the children had clearly learned lots about Sheffield’s woodlands and wildlife through these projects.”

Nadia Ibbotson, Parent Teacher Association volunteer at the school said:

“The children had great fun watching the sculpture get carved and have named it ‘Justin Beaver’! They really enjoyed the project and learned a lot from it.”

Angus Hunter from the Community Forestry team said:

“Beavers are a key species in woodland ecology, creating ponds and clearings in woodlands and managing bank side vegetation. This provides many different habitats for hundreds of other woodland and aquatic species.

Eurasian Beavers are no longer commonly found in the wild in the UK, they are a native species that was unfortunately hunted to extinction in the 16th century. We thought the winning design was particularly appropriate as Beavers are being released back into the wild in the UK on numerous sites as part of a reintroduction trial.”
