The children in 3 White have been studying Georges Seurat as part of Art Week. Seurat was born in 1859 in Paris, France, and he is now buried in it’s world famous cemetery – Pere La Chaise Cemetery. In order to explore this, the children watched a short story clip on the Literacy Shed website, where the modern day character of Lucy meets the ghost of Pianist Chopin who then gives her piano lessons. We talked about the setting of Pere La Chaise Cemetery, and how we can infer feelings and motives based upon the background and music.
