Art: The Bayeux Tapestry

We have been taking a step back in time today in the art block. To arround 1066 to be exact where the children watched a short video about the world famous Bayeux Tapestry.

The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidered cloth nearly 70 metres long and 50 centimetres tall, which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England concerning William, Duke of Normandy.

After the video, the children then were tasked with taking a particular part of the tapestry; in this case, the scene depicting the journey across from Normandy to the British Coast, and creating their own enterpretation of this scene in a cloth material.

We took some pictures of the children as they prepared their collages, which can be seen in the gallery below.
