Walking in the light of God’s Love-Together we will succeed

Exploring WWI through Christian Values

Today, Class 5 and Class 6 visited the Anglican Cathedral to take part in a series of workshops to explore experiences of the First World war through Christian Values. The values we explored were Love, Friendship, Courage, Perseverance and Trust. By the end of the day, we had also added Hope and Justice to our list. Children wore 'dogtags' on which they had to record the values they discovered through each workshop. 

Workshops included writing prayers, receiving orders as a soldier and making a book.

All of the children had a wonderful day and the Cathedral staff were extremely complimentary about their behaviour - well done children!
