Carlisle Cathedral

After our visit to Tullie House last week, KS2 made our way over to the Cathedral for a ‘Worship & Wonder’ tour and workshop.

It was wonderful opportunity to learn more about the different functions of places of worship to help us in our RE. Beyond that, however, it was an opportunity for spiritual development as pupils had the chance to quietly reflect, to marvel at the astonishing art and architecture of the cathedral, and to contemplate the long history of the site as a place of worship.

As the Cathedral is the venue for the leavers service later in the year, it was helpful for Year 6 to visit in advance and have some time to soak up the special environment for that important milestone.
