The Learning Department currently offers a choice of Virtual activities in History and RE for pupils in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4. Led from the Cathedral and beamed directly into your classroom, each workshop is live and interactive and can be tailored to suit your exact learning requirements.

Virtual Christmas RE Day - Wednesday 15 December

Why not join with us as we host a special Virtual Christmas Trail this December, as our 60 minute workshop is led from the Cathedral floor and beamed right into the heart of your classroom. Suitable for years 1 - 4, the children will have a live and interactive tour using the Cathedral building to bring Christmas and the Christmas story to life. They will learn about the meaning of Advent, the importance of Christmas to Christians and the way in which Christmas is celebrated in the Cathedral, before finishing with the Christmas story.

Virtual History Workshops

Why not join with us as we introduce a variety of characters from the past, right into the heart of your classroom in these live, interactive workshops. Ideal for Key Stage 2 and lasting up to 60 minutes, each workshop covers a different period of history, including Romans, Saxons, Vikings, the Medieval Monastery, Tudors and Victorians. Interviewed by our intrepid reporter and questioned by your own children, each character uses a range of artefacts to bring the past to life. 

The children loved meeting Maximus in their Roman workshop! They were totally engaged throughout and enjoyed seeing and learning about all the different artefacts he showed them. It was great to have the children's questions answered too!! Very many thanks.

Virtual RE Workshops

Why not take your pupils on a live, interactive tour of the Cathedral in our new virtual RE workshop? Ideal for Key Stage 2, 3 or 4 and tailored to suit your learning needs, the activity lasts for up to 60 minutes, and can cover topics including Baptism, Communion, the Cathedral building, Understanding Christianity and the Shrines of St Alban & St Amphibalus. 

Thank you so much for a great, educational and inspiring workshop about St Albans cathedral. The students have said they wish it had gone on for longer and the majority are eager to now visit! It was great and has helped my team's subject knowledge!
