Tudors

In Autumn term 2 we are learning about Henry VIII and why he married 6 times. We visited the Walker Art Gallery to see Hans Holbien's portrait of Henry.

We took the train from Roby station to Lime Street and walked across to the gallery.

We were amazed at how large the portrait of Henry is. It was obvious that he wanted the painting to show how rich and powerful he was. The paintings of the Tudor women on the other hand, were small and delicate with lots of exquisite detail.

We took our sketchbooks and made our own versions of some of our favourite paintings. While we were there we also looked around some of the other exhibitions. We are so proud of the amazing art in our city!
