Class 3 visited Chester Cathedral for the biennial pilgrimage.  As well as experiencing this spiritual and historical building, the children had the opportunity to discover what life would have been like as a monk as well as taking part in a range of practical workshops.  The workshops this year included bell ringing, mosaic design and discovering more about birds of prey through a falconry presentation.  The children also spent time reflecting in the children’s chapel and joined children from other schools in an act of worship to end the day.

Our annual residential visit to the Conway Centre on Anglesey was a great success. Activities, including kayaking, sea traversing, abseiling and raft building proved to be great team building experiences.
