‘The Rescue of the Forfarshire’ by the artist F. S. Lowther (1886)

Today we have been focussing our studies on Grace Darling, in preparation for our Northumberland visit.

We have looked at the Oil painting ‘The Rescue of the Forfarshire’ by the artist F. S. Lowther (1886) and imagined that we were one of the survivors. We discussed how we might have been feeling, described emotions and re-enacted the scene from the artwork.
