In the spring term, Class 2 went to the British Museum to learn more about the Ancient Greeks. Our journey wasn’t long at all. When we arrived there, we saw the ionic columns on the front of the building and the egg and darts. We saw that the Greek columns had three drums. All of us went to see the marble sculpture called the Elgin Marbles and had to look for different things. Linda told us the story of Athena. She was born out of Zeus’ head fully formed! We saw Athena in the marble and also oxen. After that, we went to see the Parthenon temple and lots of Greek vases. We spent time drawing some in our sketchbooks. Some children drew the Parthenon temple with Linda. We had so much fun.
To make our printing blocks we cut out the foam in different shapes and then we stuck it down on our double sided tape. Then we cut out the neon paper into big large pots and stuck it down on black paper. After that we rolled ink on our printing blocks, and then we pressed it carefully on our neon paper. Next we drew London pictures and stuck it down on our vast pot. Finally with neon paper we cut out small shapes and stuck it down our humongous pots. This art work was inspired by Grayson Perry.
