  • Elliott at The National Gallery Very EY PGCE March 2014
  • • After one of Elliott’s favourite journeys on the Piccadilly line to Piccadilly Circus & noticing the gallery Elliott sees his second Wow! of the day.
  • • Here is Elliott with Kirsta his mum under the Blue Chicken outside the National Gallery.
  • • We start lining up with the other students but Elliott is a bit shy. • Many of the students know about him & are delighted to meet him. Elliott is not quite so sure.
  • • This is the first picture that Elliott’s group look at. • “The Coronation of Mary” by Lorenzo Monaco • Jo is our guide & makes everyone feel very comfortable. “Put away those note books & just enjoy the painting.” • Elliott spots the angels & tries to answer every question asked. Bless!
  • • The 2nd picture is a landscape “ 4 Cows Milkmaid & other characters with town in the background”. • Elliott plays a starring role as the dog & helps Jo demonstrate what is happening in one part of the painting. • Elliott is a very good dog & produces a few “woofs” too.
  • • This is the 3rd picture “The Storm” by Turner. • Elliott thinks this is about pirates & we go for a wander to meet Rembrandt. Elliott likes the painting of a horse.
  • • Elliott & I go on a bit of a journey through “Monet land” starting with the Bridge. Somehow or another we start looking for places where crocodiles might like to live & hide in other Monet paintings. Crocodiles would like these watery places & could hide easily.
  • Would crocodiles like to live in these places? Why is that?
  • Would crocodiles like to live in any of these places? Why would that be ?
  • • We have all had a lovely morning in the Gallery. • Now its time to find the shop. • Elliott could chose one thing. He wanted a toy soldier. So we sang many renditions of the “Grand Old Duke of York” as we got ready to leave.
  • • These are two of the postcards we chose. • Monet’s Bridge to remind us about the crocodile adventure & Stubb’s Horse.
  • • Time for a run about & Lunch. • Let’s go!
  • • Lunch in Pret a Manger with Elliott’s mum & Dad (David). We all went to visit David’s new work place & Elliott met even more people. • As to what Elliott liked the best - Jo the NG guide made a very strong & lasting impression!
