We took our first school trip of the year to Westminster Cathedral, London. Westminster is a Catholic Church and the children were guided around by a very knowledgeable guide, the children behaved very well and were very respectful of the setting they were in. They learnt a lot about the history of the cathedral, the roles and responsibilities of the clergy and lay people who work within the cathedral. They looked at the beautiful, detailed mosaics and were allowed up near the altar to look at the statues and the Cathdera, which, we learnt is a special chair that the Cardinal sits on and it is why a cathedral is called a cathedral. We also took a quick trip to Buckingham palace and had a look at the front of it, the guards and the statue across from the palace!
