Dexter and Hereford Cathedral trip

What a glorious day! We were so fortunate to have the sun shine for our trip to Gloucester.

The children were impeccably well behaved and the Cathedral staff said how impressed they were by both the children’s attitudes and their knowledge around Easter and Holy Week.

After the excitement of what was for many their first bus trip, we arrived at the specular frontage of Gloucester Cathedral in glorious sunshine and were met by Danni, the Education Officer. We found our base for the morning in a room in the cloisters - a setting which caused much intrigue and excitement! We then split into groups and were given a tour of the cathedral, stopping at various locations to take part in different learning activities based around the events of a Holy Week. The children learned about Palm Sunday and wrote and drew about their hopes for the world on paper palm leaves. We have been contacted by the Cathedral to ask if they can share some of the children's thoughtful responses, as they were so impressed! They went on to learn about the last supper and why Jesus is known as 'The Servant King', and about the reason we celebrate communion to remember Jesus. They also completed some lovely Easter craft activities, making cards with images of candles and crosses, showing Jesus as the light of the world, and decorated stained glass windows with images depicting the Easter story.

We would like to thank the Cathedral Education team for such a lovely morning - we look forward to visiting again!
