Year 5 had an amazing time at St Marie’s Cathedral on Wednesday. Both classes went to the Cathedral as part of our learning on local church and our community. The children were shown around the cathedral by Mrs Maher and Mrs Smith, learning about how the Cathedral is used as a place of worship.
The children then went on to explore the Holy Sacraments and the liturgical seasons. As part of our learning on the liturgical seasons, we looked at how the priest’s vestments change with the seasons. We even got the chance to dress as priests in different seasons!
We had a fantastic time. A huge thank you to the team at the Cathedral for making our visit so much fun!
Year 5 visited St. Marie's cathedral today and participated in a project to create angels for Advent. The children had a guided tour of the cathedral to spot find images of angels (217 in total!) and got into costumes to describe aspects of what an angel is like, in dress and manner.
The children then worked extremely hard to make an angel of their own, from art and craft materials. These angels will be hung up within the cathedral for advent, so the children can see them if they are visiting the cathedral at Christmas time.
The sun was shining for us on our final day at Eyam as we set off on the Friday walk. The views were amazing as we trekked up and down hills from Eyam to Stoney Middleton and back to Eyam. It was lovely to see children pointing out landmarks and passing on their knowledge to the many parents who were able to join us for the day. Well done Year 5 for a fantastic residential!
