Today Year 2 have enjoyed a wonderful trip visiting important parts of our local community in Wombwell. As part of our RE we have been learning about significant people of faith and how faith can be seen within our community. When visiting the Methodist church we learned about the role of the minister and how important they are not only in leading services but also in keeping a strong church community running. We also enjoyed Hearing Mr Coolin play the organ and learned how the pitch of the note changed depending on the length of the pipe. Many of the children were surprised to see how much noise some wind could produce!
We also visited the community hub in Wombwell cemetery and learned about lots of the fantastic work the Friends of Wombwell do for the people of Wombwell. Finally, we visited Saint Mary's church where we talked about some of the ways Christians may worship god including discussing different kinds of services the children might have taken part in themselves.
It's safe to say we had a wonderful (if a little cold and soggy!) day and have learned lots about christianity within our local community. We look forward to learning about other faiths later on in the year!
