Enriching Experiences

Baseline: The Royal Liver Building

Visiting The Royal Liver Building to complete our baseline drawings. 

Van Gogh Immersive Experience

After studying the art work of Van Gogh, Year 3 seized the opportunity to build upon our creative skills and sketch visit the Van Gogh Alive exhibition. Whilst there, we immersed ourselves in a multi-sensory multimedia art experience which combined high-defintion projections of Van Gogh's paintings with digital surround sound for example, 'The Cherry Blossoms' by Toshiko Yonekawa!


"I've had the best day ever! I loved being able to sit and relax in a painting of Van Gogh and listen to the music. What an amazing artist he was, my favourite piece of his art is 'A Starry Night'." - Poppy W, C3


"Please can I do it all over again? I can't pick my favourite part of today. I loved the sunflower room, they are beautiful flowers I can see why Van Gogh chose them. I can't want to get back to school and create my own Van Gogh inspired piece of art!" - James K, C3



Brockhole Centre in Windermere

Stay tuned - over the coming weeks (in Summer 1), we will seize the opportunity to demonstrate our creative skills and sketch some of the geographical features that we can see at Brockhole Centre in Windermere. On top of this, as part of our study of the Stone Age, we will be visiting Calderstones Park and making the most of the scenic environment to sketch our surroundings.  


As well as this, Year 3 will be critiquing and analysing our St Francis de Sales Art Gallery in the upcoming months! We will write about what we like and why we liked it and even attempt to imitate our favourite examples!
