Visit by Lydgate School – Wednesday 20th October 21

It was great to welcome four classes, about 100 pupils from Lydgate Junior School opposite the church to spend 2 hours with us. Our Minister Rev Suzanne Nockels explained the Congregational tradition and non conformity and the children had to identify things in the church e.g. pulpit/font/communion table and explain what they thought they were used for. Taken from Lydgate school blog “On Wednesday, we all went on a short trip to Tapton Congregational Church. This was a great way for us to summarise our work in RE lessons, on the features of a church. It was great to be able to visit our local church and learn from Reverend Knockles.

We went on a treasure hunt identifying the features that we had learnt about in class, and their functions. Some of us even got to play the church organ! Then we learnt about John Bunyan, linked to the plight of people around the world, who have been imprisoned due to their faith or beliefs. We learnt that, his book, ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress,’ is an allogory for life. We went on to create our own ‘Games of Life,’ and enjoyed playing them back in class. Here is a selection of pictures from all the Year 4 classes from our trip and the follow up activities.”
