Event - KS1 Visit St Laurence Church

15 September 2014

This week Key Stage 1 visited St Laurence Church in Bidford-on-Avon to link with their RE topic of 'Creation Stories'.

The children began by looking around the churchyard and then Reverend Ruth presented some of the wonderful stained glass windows inside the church, and explained that they are used to tell a story from the Bible.

She read the Christian story of how God made the world and then the children worked in pairs to sketch a design for their own window to retell one element of the creation story.

Back at school the pupils recalled the seven days and used their sketches to transfer them to translucent paper, using bright bold colours just as in the church. We finished the day with a collective worship presented by 'Open the Book' to recap and extend our knowledge of Genesis through to God's banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.

Some of the pupils' work will be displayed in the church during the half term. Thank you to Reverend Ruth and as always, our wonderful helpers, without whom we wouldn't be able to make such interesting visits.
