John Constable's father owned the mill at Flatford, now owned by National Trust and it is in this area that Constable took inspiration for many of his paintings.
Do you recognise this scene...without 2 children in it?!
It is the scene for Constable's, The Hay Wain.
We took a rowing boat out on the River Stour, had lunch in the cafe, hunted for bugs and did some tree and bird spotting.
Tonight we will be reading 'Katie and the British Artists' by James Mayhew to remind us of Constable and the inspiration for his paintings.
