This week Primary 4 went to visit the National Portrait Gallery. Here is what a P4 said about it:
On Tuesday, 6th of June 2017, Primary 4 went on a lovely class trip to the National Portrait Gallery.
When we got there we went into the main area and met our tour guides. They were called Katherine and Moana. They told us to lie down on the ground! All of the children were bewildered but when we lay down we studied the stunning stars on the roof and the zodiac people painted on the balcony. Then we split into 2 groups. My group went upstairs and studied a painting. We got to learn more about it.
Then we got a clipboard and pencil each, and were told to draw a painting and our partners without taking our pencils off the paper or looking at the paper. This was really funny because when we looked at our piece of paper nothing was on the body. I’ve heard that the other group did something similar.
Next we went to have a little snack from our packed lunch boxes. Then we went to our workshop. We chose our partners and were told to go to a table and we created lots of different pictures using different materials.
