Yesterday morning our J1 class walked the short distance to Avinguda de Pedralbes to see the Antoni Gaudi´s famous Dragon Gatehouse which guarded the entry into Eusebi Guell´s family estate.
Miss Linda and Mrs Douglas accompanied the children who were very excited about their excursion. Following the visit Carlota, James and Lena from J1 visited the school office to tell us what they saw and did on the trip.
The lady in the centre of the photograph is Marta who was the very helpful guide. They were clearly listening carefully to her as Carlota, James and Lena were able to explain who designed the gate and what can be found in the gardens of the Finca.
The children were even able to explain the complicated Greek myth upon which the symbolism is based which includes such delightful notions as fairies turning into trees….or is it trees into fairies?
