My Thoughts

When Tamsin said we were going to do some work about paintings at the National Gallery, I thought it was going to be boring. It turned out to be interesting and fun.
I got to know George better by thinking aloud about the paintings. Al asked a lot of good questions to make you think about paintings. She made it easy for us to say whatever came into our heads.
She told us about the stories behind the pictures and the historical side of it.
One of the pictures was really freaky. There were children and they were teasing a cat. We talked about it for a few minutes. The faces are something I won’t forget.
Al has taught me to look at pictures in a new way. Before I just looked at the picture but now I look at what it really means.

    It’s great that you where able to analyse the paintings in different variations. Many pictures and paintings have a lot of meaning and can be discribed in many words and Its lovely to hear that you where able to discuss using your own thoughts on what you thought was happening in the painting.

    Thank you for sharing all the interesting things you discovered about the painting. Wasn’t it amazing that Al taught you how to look at paintings in another way? You describe this very well in your comment.
    It is also really great that you felt the experience helped you get to know another pupil.
