Recently our RE teachers, Jess and Katie took the year 9/10 group on a journey to Saint Giles Church, to discover new things about religion.
Each student walked around, looking for things that interested them, some finding bibles and some finding wall art and stained glass windows, one student finding a pulpit and read from the bible that was placed there. Everyone found something that captured their interest and learning how the church was run.
One student pointed out something that was of particularly interest ‘the church’s prayer board’, the place where the church puts up guides on how to pray giving examples of prayers. Some of the students decided they would give praying a try, standing with their hands together, kneeling, displaying huge respect for the church.
After a great time at the church, the students climbed back onto the minibus expecting to go back to school only to find out they were off out for lunch as a treat for good behaviour.
Back at school the students discussed what they would like to do on their next RE trip giving some valuable suggestions to Katie and Jess.
With this trip over and the next one in planning, the students continue their efforts in Religious Education.
