Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their recent trip to the Victoria and Albert museum. They visited Canova’s The Three Graces, wondered at Rodin’s sculptures and admired Samurai warriors in the Japan room. Our main workshop, however, focussed on the intricate and genius mathematical creations found in ‘Discoveries from the Islamic World’. With our wonderful guide, we saw the true extent of the intricate geometric patterns that went into ceramics, rugs, carpets and even ancient glass that were made over 800 years ago. Our workshop concluded with a re-enactment of a famous Persian wall mural depicting a princess being fussed over by her servants. It was a great trip.
