Year 4 visited Salisbury Cathedral, to learn more about how our dioceses works and what bishops, priests, vicars and other members of the clergy do to guide us with our faith.
Prior to visiting the cathedral, the children had learned about the history of the cathedral. When we arrived at the cathedral, we spilt into groups and were given tours by very knowledgeable guides, who pointed out some of the interesting statues and other features in the cathedral.
We found out that the word ‘cathedral’ comes from the Greek word for ‘seat’, because a cathedral has the seat for a bishop.
The children also took photographs as part of a photograph competition. The photographs that the children took showed how carefully they were looking at the details of the cathedral on their visit.
