On Wednesday Year 8 German students went on a trip to see several German works of art in the Hayward Gallery and the Tate Modern.

On arrival at the South Bank Centre, students explored Klaus Weber’s stunning bronze statues that worked with water from a fountain to create the effect of a beautiful peacock. Afterwards, students visited the Tate Modern, looking first at several different German expressionist paintings and then using our German vocabulary and structures to describe some paintings by the visual artist Gerhard Richter.

In the afternoon students enjoyed a lovely a picnic outside in the sunny weather and returned to school.
