Year 3 Trip to Watt's Gallery
Year 3 visited Watt's Gallery in Godalming.
The three activities were very different: Boys were able to visit the chapel and found out about who designed and made it. They were told about the little hidden terracotta animal figures that adorn the outside and about the importance of the dragon on the door.
In the pottery, they were able to work with terracotta clay and make a tile in the same way that tiles were made for the chapel. The boys really concentrated hard on this task and really enjoyed it.
A tour of the gallery involved looking at and analysing several of G F Watts’s paintings and also involved some dressing up…as Victorian ladies, which the boys thoroughly enjoyed.
It was a great day and thanks must go to the wonderful gallery staff and our own for making the day such an enjoyable one for the boys, who behaved impeccably throughout.
Well done, Year 3!
