To complete their topic work , Year 3 and 4 went on a visit to Chatsworth House. They viewed the exhibition of costumes, as they had been learning about the history of fashion in English lessons. They also toured the gardens, to look at the work of artist Michael Craig-Martin, whose work they had studied in art. Everyone really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot.
