Take One Picture is the National Gallery’s countrywide scheme for primary schools which aims to inspire a lifelong love of art and learning by promoting the role of visual arts within education. In nursery we looked at the picture ‘A Roman Triumph’ by Peter Paul Rubens and decided to act out the parade in the woods and bring our art work to life. We listened to what a trumpet fanfare sounded like and used cardboard tubes to be our trumpets. We used other instruments too to be extra noisy!
In the picture there are different animals like a cow which Isabella pointed out was wearing a crown! An elephant was also featured so we wore animal masks to make it more realistic!
We really enjoyed it as well as the finding worms, taking the decorations off our tree in the woods, squelching (and falling) in the mud, finding and re-hiding our rocks and climbing on anything we could possible climb on!
Next week we introduce our new friends to the woods. I wonder what they will think!
