Virtual Cathedral Day

On Friday morning, Year 6 took part in a virtual Cathedral Schools Day.

The theme was journeying around the Cathedral. This was specifically chosen to recognise that Year 6 are on a journey to the prepare for the next stage of their education. It was a busy but interesting morning and here are a few of the highlights.

We particularly enjoyed watching a video of the Dean, who was in his garden in the grounds of the Cathedral, with his geese, ducks and pigs!

A video explaining the story behind the tall, wooden ‘War Horse’ sculpture proved to be fascinating as it links with our Topic on WW2.

After watching a video about how, through excavation, the stonemasons have found ‘hidden treasures’ within the cathedral: painted stones which have unlocked more information about the Cathedral’s past story, our Year 6 decorated their own stones with images or words that are important to them right now with messages / images that would bring them happiness or comfort.

Following this activity, Year 6 were introduced to books stored in the Cathedral’s library and were shown a beautiful, ornate example made from parchment. They were then able to decorate their own initial written in the style of the illuminated scriptures.

We also took part in a virtual worship led by Bishop Rose, children from local schools and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

There was time for reflection and plenty of animated discussion throughout the morning.
