The National Gallery

Year 5 enjoyed their educational visit to the National Gallery in London.  After a coach trip in, past lots of sights, the group eventually arrived in Trafalgar Square.  On entering the National Gallery they got to appreciate many famous and priceless artworks in the flesh.

The children were excited to see the different sizes, styles and levels of detail that different artists had used and to learn about the stories behind some of the famous artworks from our resident art expert Mrs Thompson.

After a slightly grey lunch sitting out by the infamous Trafalgar Square fountains, the children had a chance to climb on the plinth of Nelson’s Column before heading back inside to soak up some more of our capital’s culture before heading home.
