I wonder ……

  • how difficult was it to build the buildings?
  • how did he know his designs would work?
  • why does Gaudi want to be different?
  • what or who inspired him?

    Gaudi: I see, I think, I wonder…..


    This year all of the classes in our school are being named after artists.

    Our class is named after the brilliant architect/artist Antoni Gaudi.

    We spent this morning looking at some of Gaudi’s amazing buildings, fantastic mosaics and creative motifs or plants and animals.

    Next we all took smaller photographs and postcards and worked on the “See, Think, Wonder” routine in our groups. There was lots of interesting discussions and points of view about Gaudi’s work.

    Lastly we came together as a whole group and thought about all of Gaudi’s work, and how he saw the world. We came up with some new vocabulary and ideas when we listened and responded to the thoughts of the other kids in the group.
