Year 1 Cathedral Trip

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had an amazing time on our trip yesterday. We learnt lots of new facts about St Alban and the cathedral – did you know it costs £5,000 a day to run the cathedral?

The children all behaved really well and they truly loved the day. At the beginning, we split into two halves and did a St Alban trail, every child dressed up as a character in the story. There was Amphibalus (Chrisitian Priest), Alban (he wasn’t a Saint until he died), the Magistrate, executioner, soldiers, a spy, slave buyers, slave sellers and of course the slaves themselves.

After the St Alban trail, we all came together to have lunch and after that, they made wonderful mosaics. They planned out their pattern on a plain piece of white paper and then they got to work. I loved the patterns they created and each one was so different and unique. They all boarded the coach very safely and even though they didn’t have any time to run around at the cathedral, they still listened and followed instructions. I am so impressed with how well they behaved throughout the day.

Thank you for all providing them with a packed lunch and water as well!

As ever, if you have any questions please feel free to come and see me, my door is always open.

Kind regards,

Miss Upton and Mrs Fox
