Year 3 Visit to the Laing Art Gallery

Year 3 Visit to the Laing Art Gallery


As part of our art curriculum topic on ‘the Northern Spirit’ and our Geography topic ‘Where We Live’ Year 3 will be visiting the Laing Art Gallery to take part in a ‘Local Landscapes’ workshop. Each class will be going on a different date:

Y3M – Friday 17th June

Y3FB – Friday 8th July


During the workshop, the pupils will discover artworks based on life in the North East using collections from the Northern Spirit gallery as inspiration. Pupils will also investigate local heritage and industry, such as mining and shipbuilding through the people and landscapes depicted in paintings, brought to life through games and interactive activities.


We will be leaving school at 9:30am and will return to school at 12:30pm. Children will be travelling by coach and must wear their school uniform not their PE kit. Lunch will be at school as usual. Please note there will be no cost for this trip as school will be subsidising it.


If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact either Mrs Bone, Mrs Fellows or Mrs Stubbs via email.


Thank you!
