We have enjoyed studying our faces this week and producing a painting of ourselves which will be displayed in the classroom for all to see.
The Great Exhibition of the North
We've only been back to school for a few days and we've already been on a school trip. Today we visited
the Quayside to look at exhibits from the Great Exhibition of the North. We arrived at the Sage first and watched a special animation called Bridges. It was about a fisherman and his dog on a journey up the Tyne. Afterwards we listened to different pieces of music through headphones. We had to create our own graphic score, using shapes and colour to draw what we thought of when we listened to the music. While outside, we watched the water fountains in the River Tyne and then headed to the Baltic. We looked around the Baltic at some of the exhibits about the future of where we live. We also got to see the Millennium Bridge turning to let a boat come through. We behaved so sensibly and really enjoyed our time at the Great Exhibition of the North.
