Year 3 - William Morris Gallery...

On Friday 26th June, Year 3 went to the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. WIlliam Morris was a famous artist. He designed wallpaper, curtains and textiles. When he took walks in Epping Forest, he was inspired by nature and he drew pictures to reflect this.

In the Gallery we saw a trellis and he even drew a picture of his wife Jane. We had a worksheet and it asked us to draw pictures of ceramics and tapestry. My favourite part of the gallery was when we saw a button which played Morris's favourite piece of music. There was even some stairs and they were called the 'Servant Stairs' and the 'Family Stairs'. 

Later, we did some printing with paint and we had a piece of paper and we had to connect the dots of a dodo and colour them in. After that we went down the servant stairs and had our lunch.

It was a very enjoyable day and fun as well!
