The History of Robots

The weather was nice today so I took the children to central London to experience the Tate Britain and walk along the River Thames. The original agenda for the day changed so it was just the children and I that made the short journey on the train.

They were really interested in the culture and history and kept me occupied with questions. I must admit my knowledge of our history isn't that great so there was a limit to what I could answer!

We arrived at the Tate Britain and browsed through the paintings, sculptures and exhibitions. I always feel really inspired when I walk through a gallery as some of the collections are incredible. Available in one of the exhibition rooms was an area for the children to create their own masterpiece. They created robots as a Mother's Day gift which they presented to her when they were collected later that evening. Their source of inspiration was Wall-E although not quite sure when we passed through that exhibition!
