Year 2 channel their creativity


Earlier this month, Year 2 visited Tate Britain in London.The girls were able to explore the gallery to find works of art by Henry Moore, William Turner and a number of Pre-Raphaelite artists. They had the opportunity to sketch some of their favourite art.

Mrs Gray, Year 2 Form Teacher, commented, “It was a privilege to take such enthusiastic girls to the gallery. Their sketching demonstrated an eye for detail and their questions showed they were curious about the artists who painted the pictures and the subjects that were painted. We were very excited to see some Henry Moore sculptures that were being removed from the gallery as we had learned about them at school. It was a delight to hear some girls mention that some work we observed was abstract art and rather amusing to hear one girl say that one piece was a little bit too abstract!”

One of the paintings which clearly fascinated the girls was The Procession by Hew Locke. Perhaps we can be inspired to create our own procession at school…?
