On Monday this week we visited Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, the children were truly amazed by the building when we pulled into the long driveway. The Children looked very closely at a Canaletto picture, Regatta on the Canal. The children talked about what was happening in the picture, we explained that the picture had been painted in Venice in Italy a long long time ago. The children noticed that some of the people were wearing masks. They then made their own Venician mask. After this we enjoyed a music session in the Royal room, singing and playing instruments. Thank you to all staff at Bowes Museum who made our day very enjoyable. The children will now complete an art project inspired by the Canaletto picture which will be part of an exhibition displayed in Bowes Museum later in the year.
Friday was our Mega Maths morning, parents, Aunties and Granddads came to enjoy doing lots of different maths activities inside and outside with the children. The morning was enjoyed by all and we are very grateful to all who attended.
