Despite the drizzly start, Year 6 enjoyed a super trip to the Willis Museum in Basingstoke Town today. Ms Rogers came along with us too and led an insightful and inspiring discussion about the life of Matisse and his artwork. The children then explored the gallery with a fantastic level of curiosity and enjoyed observing Matisse’s vividly bright designs. They all demonstrated fantastic behaviours in a gallery setting, some of whom had never visited a gallery before. The curators even commented on how well behaved the children were and how nice it was to hear visitors within the museum once again. We also made the most of the Willis Museum itself and learnt lots about the history of our local town over the past 200 years. The children were shocked at the style of the 1960s kitchen!
Take a look at our pictures to see how much fun we had.
