Peterborough Cathedral Year 6 Visit

By Miss Tansley, Year 6 Toucans Class Teacher

On Tuesday 2nd November, Y6 were lucky enough to be visited by a member of staff from Peterborough Cathedral. The aim of the session was for the pupils to be introduced to some of our local history, based on monarchs and how they fit into historical chronology on a national scale too. The session promoted great discussion among the children, they had the opportunity to ask questions and enhance their own knowledge. Videos were watched, that were created by cathedral staff in character, to help immerse the classes into specific time periods and they were even spoken to by the current Bishop of the cathedral - Bishop Donald.

After our initial information gathering session, the children were then given the opportunity to carry out some matching games and activities to enhance their knowledge - later enabling a 'Top Trumps' style game to be played! Overall, it was a super visit, where both the classes and adults learned a lot! Thank you to the Cathedral Staff for a super morning.
