Year 7 visit Norwich Cathedral

Leave a comment

Year 7 went on a trip to Norwich Cathedral last week and learnt the history behind it.

Firstly we went through the giant nave and looked at the architecture of the beautiful arches and the outstanding stained glass windows. We learnt about all the types of limestone. We learned how the monks used the cloisters for a variety of activities such as reading and copying out manuscripts. They also used the cloisters to play games.

Then we had an interesting tour through the library and learned how books were made and printed. We even saw a very early reference book with a chain attached so people could not take it away!
