Year 2 trip to Norwich Cathedral

Year 2 had a very exciting day out to Norwich Cathedral. Lots of the children had never been to the cathedral before so they were very excited!

We were greeted by Mistress Martha that may have lived in the cathedral in Norman times and we all took part in different activities during our visit.

The children experienced what life would have been like in Norman times and what the people would have eaten and what jobs they may have done. The children even got to look at some real herbs that they would have used to flavour their food.

They enjoyed looking at real Mason’s tools and watching how they were used, working as a team to build arches and singing like Monks in the choir seats.

The children behaved well and were a credit to our federation! Visiting the Cathedral brought our topic, Norwich’s Past to life. The children are now really excited for our forthcoming medieval day which will include making pottage soup, medieval dancing and a medieval banquet.
