Teams 7/8HA, 7/8GL, 7/8EW and 7/8LC have been learning about historic Lincoln during humanities lessons this term and on Friday 1st March, we finished off our topic by taking a trip to Lincoln Cathedral.
Pupils had a tour of the cathedral and were thrilled to learn that it was built by St. Hugh. We sat on the pews in the main chapel and looked at the carvings and ornate designs. We noticed that the organ was enormous and much bigger than the one we had played on at St. Cuthbert's Church last year. We also learned about the stained glass windows and the roles of the different areas of the cathedral. We stopped at the back of the cathedral and two pupils lit a candle to remember those dear to us.
We ate lunch in the Chapterhouse, sitting on cushions and enjoying the beautiful architecture. We spent the afternoon in our teams completing a scavenger hunt, resulting in us spotting the Lincoln Imp. At the end of the day, some pupils from 7/8HA presented the tour guides with leaflets that they had made in class based on the research they had found. The cathedral has since sent us a thank you letter, praising the team for their hard work and great presentation skills.
