As part of Local Songs Week, the children from Year 3 spent the morning at Shipley Art Gallery to look at the painting ‘The Blaydon Races’ painted by William Irving.

The session with Morgan helped the children to understand the history of the song and that the opportunity to look at some Victorian objects that appear on the painting.  The  children also worked in groups to ‘freeze frame’ a section of the painting for the rest of the class to guess the characters.
