Year 7 Religious Studies Field Trip

On Tuesday 12th January, Year 7 students made a trip to St Helen's Church in Ashby with representatives from Ashby Youth for Christ as part of their Religious Studies. Students are currently learning all about different places of worship.

On this trip students were challenged to use their observational skills to explore the church and find out what they could about how people worship now, how it was different in the past, and why Jesus was so important to Christians. After their investigations students came together to share their discoveries or ask further questions about things that had intrigued them.

Some of the things that students discovered were; lots of names on monuments and plaques which showed them that wealthy families were often financial sponsors for the church, paying for upkeep and building work. They found that lecterns in the past were built raised above the congregation so people's voices could be heard more clearly. They also found out more about the historic Hastings family from Ashby, and about the family tomb.

Students enjoyed the opportunity for learning outside the classroom and can now use the information they have had in their comparison work back at school.
