Year 1 Visit to Holy Trinity Church
On Thursday 8th December 2022, Year 1 children visited Holy Trinity Church. Pupils enjoyed the morning and were educated about why people go to Church, particularly at Christmas time, and why this is an important place of worship. We were greeted by Nick who works at the Church, who modelled a really fun activity. The children were tasked to hunt for images with a letter and number. These letters spelt out the word ‘Emmanuel’ which links to one of The Bible stories which he then shared with everyone. Pupils then did some role-play for the story of the Nativity which allowed them to dress up as the characters. We then played a true and false game after listening to statements that Nick read aloud. We finished the morning with some question and answers from Nick which gave pupils lots of insights into the various things that are in the Church and the reasons behind them.
Evee-Mae said "I liked looking around the Church. The Christmas tree was decorated amazingly and I liked the true and false game.”
Levi "I liked playing the number and letter game to spell the word for our story.”
Saeeb "I worked with my partner to find the letters. It spelt Emmanuel.”
Bonnie "I liked watching Daisy and Mason acting the nativity.”
From the staff and children of Temple Meadow, we want to thank the Church and its members for all the effort they put into organising a fun morning for us.
