Some days, London is a truly inspiring city to live in and visit.
Today was one of those days.
Following a visit to “Painting the Modern Garden“, on its final day at the Royal Academy of Arts, we ventured into St. James’s Park and then on to Trafalgar Square.
We’re advocates of outdoor learning – for children and adults alike – and for only one more day there’s an opportunity to see a replica of Syria’s Palmyra Arch of Triumph.
Learning in history, geography, current news, art, design, maths, language. . . . . . . . and the pleasure of being out and about on a sunny spring day.
The arch was destroyed in October 2015 by Islamic State Militants, Daesh. This model has been constructed by the Institute of Digital Archaeology working with a 3D scanner and Egyptian stone.
Here’s a selection of photos from our walk today.

It’s good to see that some schools have already visited this temporary structure.
