All Saints Church
Monday 3rd December 2018
On Monday afternoon, Year 1 visited All Saints’ church. We walked down to church very sensibly with our partners and managed to avoid all of the puddles! In English this week the children will be writing a recount of their visit.
The main purpose of our visit was to learn a bit more about Advent. Father Jeremey showed the children the Advent candles and we looked at what each candle represents. He also told us that purple is the colour of Advent and we found several things in the church which were this colour!
Whilst we were there we also looked at the different objects around the church and what they are used for such as the font and the altar. The children all managed to have a look inside the altar with a bit of help from the teachers!
The children’s behaviour was superb and they asked very thoughtful questions about the different things they could see in the church.
Here are some pictures of Year 1 during their visit.
