Take One Picture Week

  • Week 2: Take One Picture Week-
    Each year the National Gallery holds a nation wide event called; Take One Picture Week. This initiative involves school aged children using a chosen art piece as the vehicle for all their learning for one week. All teaching and learning focuses on an aspect of the painting and all subjects; English, Math, History, Geography, Science, are taught through the context of the chosen painting. At Hillcross we wanted to take this idea and develop for ourselves. 
  • So the Whole School Topic Team selected three paintings for the children to vote on;

    The children voted and the winning painting was....

Canaletto- Venice: The Basin of San Marco on Ascension Day
