As part of our Ancient Greek topic this term Year 5/6 researched local buildings to see which had been inspired by Ancient Greek style architecture. We then visited Grey Street in Newcastle, took photographs and sketched some of the Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns we could see all around us. What was your favourite building or statue?
We were lucky enough to see the golden statue of a First World War soldier which was installed outside the Theatre Royal in Newcastle ahead of Remembrance Sunday .
We were able to pay our respects to the ‘Centenary Soldier’ sculpture which stands an impressive 10 metres tall on a plinth of limestone sourced from the Somme. What did you enjoy about our visit?
