Y5/6 brought their RE learning to life by going on a trip to St Albans. We visited a synagogue first to learn about Judaism. The children gained first hand experience of how Jewish people worship and celebrate their faith. My group particularly enjoyed ‘Friday Night Dinner!’ Huge thanks to all the ladies from the synagogue for making us feel so welcome.
Then, a short trip back to the Cathedral, lunch in the wind, then inside for a tour. We learnt about St Alban (the first Christian martyr), and the changes the building had gone through from its beginnings as a shrine to St Alban, to the grand Norman building we see today.
A great day out. Year 5/6 – what interested you?
