Steve McQueen’s Year 3 at Tate Britain

We had a very interesting visit to Tate Britain to see artist Steve McQueen’s epic art installation in the gallery’s central hall, featuring 76,000 of London’s then Year 3 pupils, including our class.  The children were encouraged to celebrate that they were part of this extraordinary art collaboration and to recognise that it was the collective hopes, dreams and actions of every young person pictured on the gallery walls – including theirs – that would form the future of London.

Given our study of the Victorians, it was worth remembering that this wonderful public gallery was founded by a Victorian sugar merchant!
