Neptune Class recreate William Wyllie’s Battle of Trafalgar

All was quiet and calm in Neptune Class on Friday afternoon – 28 children were busy concentrating on adding detail to their Battle of Trafalgar paintings.  Their art work had been inspired by William Wyllie’s painting the ‘Battle of Trafalgar’.  A huge panorama of this beautiful painting was viewed by some of the KS1 children who visited the ‘Trafalgar Experience’ as part of the visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard earlier this week.

The paintings are drying out for the weekend and then I am sure that some of them will be ready for display to the general public in our classroom and also in our shared area.  Below are some photos showing the work in progress – We think they are great!

      The children (and teachers!) were ‘transformed’ into rats to inspire them to write in role earlier in the day, when they were writing a diary of a rat on board HMS Victory. They did look good and they produced some lovely writing too. 🙂
