Hazlegrove Year 3 enjoyed an exciting day at the National Trust's Montacute House.

Described as 'a masterpiece of Elizabethan renaissance architecture', the children enjoyed a magical day as they stepped back in time and enjoyed hearing about the beautiful home built by Lord Phelips to enjoy in the holidays with his family and friends over 400 years ago.

Head of Lower School, Mrs Bartlett said, 'The children were offered a range of exciting activities, either to write with quills and ink, make spice bags and explore herbs and spices used in the kitchen or dress up in Tudor clothes.It was a special day, full of happy memories.'
