A few years ago, the Schools’ Team at Coventry Cathedral piloted a number of Foundation and Early Years Cathedral Workshops. Following a number of successful pre-school and school visits, we are now providing a selection of workshops for you to choose from.
Each of these workshops can be easily adapted to suit your children’s needs and we would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
NOAH’S ARK AND THE LOST SHEEP – Explore one or both of these well-known Bible Stories and discover the animals found in the Cathedral.
CATHEDRAL SENSORY TOUR – Enjoy a tour round the Cathedral using only your senses or an activity session, concentrating on one sense at a time.
PREPARING FOR EASTER – Journey around the Cathedral following the Easter Story.
CREATION – Enjoy the creation story, looking at shapes, patterns and space in the interior and exterior of the Cathedral.
