On 3rd October, Year 4 visited the beautiful Ely cathedral. It was lovely to see how amazed the children were by the sheer size of the cathedral and its splendid design. When we arrived, we were treated to a performance detailing World War 1, after which we split into groups to attend varied workshops. Each class took part in two workshops including; meeting a British soldier, singing, looking at and making their own propaganda posters, remembrance and creating silhouettes. To complete the day, all of the visiting schools gathered in the Octagon for a collective worship, including a prayer and silence for those who fought and died in the war. It was an enjoyable day and the children represented the school proudly.
“We had the best time at Mountfitchet Castle, learning all about the Vikings and how they lived. We were able to go inside Viking houses and we even put ourselves in the stocks! We learned all about how the Vikings cruelly tortured people and we really enjoyed feeding and stroking all the live animals that roamed the castle. The best part though, was using a huge catapult and getting the teachers soaked!” Elisa and Nazeefah – Honey Bees
