This morning we had a really interesting visit from a real architect.
Here are some of the things we learned.
Elise – there are lots of different types of architect
Adam – we learned you had to be good at maths, science and english – not just art
Lauren- a lot of an architect’s job is talking to people
Angus – he had to really focus on the structure of buildings
Cristina – it takes 7 years to train to be an architect
Rose – the client is the most important part of the team
Elise and Adam – he designs buildings and houses. He has designed pubs and an amazing office building in London near Kingscross Station
In pairs we took on the role of the architect and and client and had a go at designing a building to the brief of the client.
We had a great time yesterday exploring lots of Roman artefacts. We got to handle wax writing tablets with stylus. We looked at leather fragments of shoes. We tried on a Roman sword belt and pictish bangle.
There were little oil lamps, cooking pots and containers.
A collection of Roman coins with heads of different emperors.
A mortaria which was a grinding bowl, There were pieces of grit pressed into the bowl and this helped to grind corn or seeds.
Tara found it cool that Roman people wrote on bees wax tablets but found the smell weird. Aimee liked this as well as she really wanted to feel what it was like. Rana I liked the stylus because it looked like gold.
