Our themed interactive trails support the national curriculum. Some RE sessions also link to the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education syllabus. Trails take place in the Cathedral and involve role-play, question time, dressing-up and games. You can pair all of our trails with a hands-on creative workshop.
EYFS and KS1 Trails
God's World: see the Genesis Creation Story come to life and re-tell the story through interactive games. Search for elements of creation in the Cathedral and grounds and think about the ways that citizens can take care of our world.
Exploring Christian Symbols: experience the Cathedral building and explore key features with an emphasis on how these connect with Christian beliefs. Role-play a baptism at our font and talk learn about its associated with baptism, spot physical symbols around the Cathedral and learn about their significance for Christians.
Linked hands-on workshops: Puppets, Candle-making.
