The Learning Department offers a variety of activities for pupils at Nursery and EYFS. Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and costume to help pupils develop their learning, whilst most workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit. Find out more below, or contact a member of our Learning team. 

RE Activities

The Cathedral is used as a place of Christian worship every day of the year, but why was it built, how is it used and what do Christians believe? Our Signs & Symbols and Celebrations trails explore all of these themes and more in an interactive and engaging way. At Christmas and Easter we also run our seasonal activities to explore these major Christian festivals. We have a number of art and craft workshops to accompany these too, including Stained Glass and Clay Tiles.  

Maths and Science

Drawing inspiration from the Cathedral building, we have a number of activities that develop skills in Maths and Science. Our trails include Buckets Full of Shape and Colour and Shape & Measure in Maths, and All About Me - Our 5 Senses, and Materials in Science. Our Clay Tiles workshop and Stained Glass Window workshop complement these activities wonderfully. 


The Cathedral is used every day by many different people from the local community. In our People Who Help Us trail, the children will explore the building to find out about who works in the Cathedral, actively taking part and dressing up as different members of the church community. 

Art and Craft

The Cathedral is full of beautiful arts and crafts, and we run two workshops which draw inspiration from this, Clay Tiles and Stained Glass Windows. At the end of each workshop, all the children will have produced a piece of art to take back to school with them.

A really great day, which covered lots of the Early Years curriculum.
