Year 4 Famous Coventrian Week – Trevor Tennant

Famous Coventrian Week – Lady Godiva

 

Learning Objective: To generate freeze frames based on BH values.

These sculptures are made by Trevor Tennant in 1953. He is a local artist (he also made the famous lady Godiva clock!). He named the sculptures ‘The people of Coventry’.

“Their aim is to express a timeless feeling of continuity, Citizens of a thousand years, today, and tomorrow.”

Have a closer look at the sculptures of the figures. Where are they in Coventry?

What values do you think they might symbolise?

Task

The children were asked to create a freeze frame to showcase one Broad Heath Value. 

Can you guess which value they represent? Kindness, respect, tenacity and teamwork are the options.
