Art Gallery and Museum Visit

As part of their Greek topic, Years 5 & 6 made visit into York to visit the new refurnished Art Gallery and the Yorkshire Museum.

At the gallery we found out about the Greek art of philosophy, thinking carefully about the work on display and trying to understand what made art beautiful.
At the end we voted in the Ancient Greek way, by putting a coloured pebble in a vase.

Then we went to the Yorkshire museum to find out about the Ancient Greek civilisation, having a chance to handle artefacts from Greece that were over 3000 years old.

We though about Greek architecture.

We also had some fun finding

out about what was worn . . .

and acting out the story of Perseus.
