"It was a fun trip where we learnt about the history of one of the richest men in the world and how Jazz came to England.
The man, Lord Astor, was so wealthy that he owned the whole of Manhattan and that his safe was as big as a class room.
The new exhibition housed colourful tube maps to embroidered dresses. After exploring the galleries we sat down to draw our favourite artefacts. Back in the classroom, we discovered the equality issues when jazz was first introduced whilst being told the story of an extraordinary woman who didn’t care what you looked like. The tale followed with a bit of a boogie. We learnt the bee’s knees and the Charleston. By the end we were all amazed by the way Jazz changes people lives."
