Canterbury Cathedral trip-March 2022

The children went back in time on this trip to Canterbury Cathedral. They discovered how it was founded in Anglo-Saxon times by Saint Augustine when he was offered the site by King Ethelbert and Queen Bertha. On a costume trail, they learned about life in Anglo-Saxon times right up to the siege of Canterbury that involved the dramatic kidnapping and murder of Archbishop Alphege at the hands of the Vikings in 1011.

Other activities included: quill pen writing, making stained-glass windows, decorating the Canterbury Cross, stone masonry, building crafts and sketching items from within this beautiful cathedral.
