Year 5 Trip to The Wallace Collection

Year 5 went on an Art and History trip to the Wallace Collection which after its recent two year renovation, is looking more splendid than ever.

The girls looked around the historic rooms which exhibit the museum’s world-renowned range of fine and decorative arts from the 15th to the 19th centuries.  The various activities included them being shown some amazing artefacts,  including suits of armour for both soldiers and horses,  and viewing the famous portraits whilst having the chance to dress up and pose like the subjects –  as well as selecting a favourite painting or two to sketch.   Discussions centred around the following paintings: Queen Victoria by Thomas Sully, Miss Elizabeth Haverfield by Thomas Gainsborough and The Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals.  Girls mimicked the subjects of the paintings by dressing up in a similar fashion.  They also experienced dressing up in the replicas of heavy armour.                                           

The trip was a fascinating mixture of observation, creativity, interaction and fact finding and the girls had a wonderful time. We enjoyed a great day with many positive compliments about the girls from those who work at the museum and from members of the public – the girls were great ambassadors for The Study.
