Today is the 1st day of the Community Torch Relay.
For 2 weeks before half term we worked with 30 schools at Derby Silk Mill Museum, making the basic torch structure and working on ideas .......then they went away and put the finishing touches to their own unique torch. 
We haven't seen the results until now 
Look at Derwent Community School's torch, we love the figures around the bottom and wonderful flames on the top.
Well done!!!
