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!
Today was very educational. First, we visited a lovely calming church. Then the museum was very interesting with its artefacts. We watched a short video about Eyam and saw all the plague symptoms (It was disgusting!) After that the tour was informative about the village and its past. We saw all the graves of important people. Also, we saw a tomb in a garden with horses in it and in the church yard Catharine Mompesson’s tomb too. Then we split into three groups. We went to the park three times. Today was really good fun. We went to Cucklet Delph. It was very muddy, yet we survived! It was such a walk back to youth hostel. Overall, we had a fantastic day and the ghost hunt is yet to come...!
