Trip to Peterborough Cathedral
Yesterday, Blue and Purple Class visited Peterborough Cathedral for a RE and History trip and we had a very exciting time!
Most of the children had never been to the cathedral before and when we entered the gates, we were shocked by the size of it! It is HUGE!
The two tour leaders, Alix and Judi greeted us and we began by having a guided tour around the cathedral. Both the children and staff learnt lots of interesting facts including: what makes a cathedral a cathedral, discovering Katherine of Aragon's resting place, finding out about who else is buried there, how the Danes destroyed alot of the cathedral and many many more!
Not only did we get to go on a tour but we also went on a Saxon treasure hunt throughout the cathedral, finding out about certain Saxon artefacts and sketching them. Also at the education centre, the children designed and created their own piece of Saxon treasure to take home with them.
Amelie said her very part of the trip was standing next to where a previous Queen of England was buried.
Jamie said he really enjoyed the treasure hunt in the cathedral.
All of the class said they thought the trip was amazing!
