The Canterbury Cathedral visit started the Year 7 Activities Week extremely successfully, with the whole year group travelling to this historic place of worship and focus for global Anglicanism.
Girls were treated to a tour of the Cathedral, hearing the history of the church and the stories behind the worship. The gory details of murder were discussed by some groups, while others faced the problem of negotiating steep, stone stairs on their knees!
Canterbury's place as a centre of pilgrimage is well known so, beyond RS and History, the English skills of the students were also developed. Following lesson preparation previously, girls were given the opportunity to reflect and produce some Chaucer-inspired creative writing, focusing on characterisation.
Throughout the trip, the girls represented the school and themselves well. Well done to the year group and thanks to all the staff who accompanied the trip.
