Today all of year 4 have been lucky enough to visit St. Philips Cathedral, St Martin's Church and the BMAG Museum. We visited the churches to reinforce our learning about Christianity and, while we were there, we also popped into the museum to conduct a Roman treasure hunt!
4.2's first stop of the day was the impressive St Philip's Cathedral.
Our knowledgeable tour guide told us all about how the church was chosen to become Birmingham Cathedral in 1905 when, during a period of massive industrial growth, Birmingham became a city.
She also showed us the cathedral's famous stained glass windows which tourists come from far and wide to see for themselves!
After this informative talk, we split into two groups to learn more about the church itself.
Here we are taking a closer look at the baptismal font.
Maizy played the part of a proud mother bringing her daughter to be baptised while Harry took the role of the father and Makale and Reagan were named godparents!
Here are some of the children learning about the ship's bell which was displayed in the cathedral.
Harry investigated the inscriptions inside the bell which gave the names of all the people who were baptised on the HMS Birmingam.
Dalton even got to have a go at ringing the bell!
After a quick snack in the pigeon park...
We headed over to the museum.
Here we became Roman Treasure Hunters as we searched for some interesting artefacts.
Our final stop of the day was at St Martin's Church in the bullring.
Here the reverend gave us a very informative guided tour of the historic church.
We have learnt a lot about Christianity today and showed respect for the religious locations that we visited, great job today 4.2!
