Year 2 visited St Albans Cathedral today which was a lovely cool place to be on such a hot day!
They spent the morning taking part in a Maths trail, measuring the width, length and height of the nave with different types of measuring instruments. They also looked for symmetrical patterns in the church, which involved doing rubbings of the patterned floor tiles. In the afternoon they looked at the stained glass windows and then made their very own ones which were very impressive! The children really enjoyed the day and behaved beautifully – they were a credit to the school.
Thank you to Mrs Davis, Mrs Roper and our teaching assistants, Mrs Barker, Mrs Green, Mrs Hawkins and Miss Moore. A special thank you to Mr Harris, who drove the children and adults to the cathedral in the mini bus which meant two journeys each way! He also stayed for the day to help look after the children.
