KS1: Exploring Christian Symbols through the Five Senses

Using their senses to experience the Cathedral building, children will explore key features of the Cathedral and learn about how these link to Christian beliefs.  To enable us to operate safely, schools will be required to assign children to groups of no more than 15.  Our maximum capacity for this session is 30 children.

An ideal partner for this is our Candle Making workshop.
