Class 3 visited The British Museum to learn all about Ancient Greek Architecture, God and Goddesses. They learnt about the different parts to Greek buildings. For example: columns, drums, pediment, egg and dart, ionic capital and dentils. In the Museum, they drew different types of Ancient Greek pottery and the front of an Ancient Greek Temple.
Today, class 3 went to see the illustrator, Neal Layton, at the Children’s Book Show at the Old Vic theatre.
In the theatre, Neal told the children how he created his wonderful illustrations for his book, The Tree, as well as illustrations for the book, Stanley’s Stick, by author John Hegley. The 870 children, who attended from different schools in London, were read aloud to. Not only that, all the children were given a free book of Neal's book, The Tree, to take home!
