Visit to the Church

Class 1 have been learning all about the Church and the parts inside the Church.  The children have been discussing why we have each part, and were fascinated to learn that the Church is built in the shape of a cross!  The parts we learned about were:

  • The Cross
  • Stained Glass windows
  • The pulpit
  • The font
  • Lectern
  • Pews
  • Altar

When we visited the church we talked about the font first, which is at the start of the church as you walk in, because the children that are baptised are being welcomed into the church.  The Pulpit is important to stand in, as you can see the whole congregation and your voice can be heard.  The stained glass windows each tell a biblical story.  Fascinating stuff!  Thank you Mrs Phillips, who taught us a lot that day!
