Y4 Trip to Dewsbury Minster

Our visit to the Dewsbury Minster 

Today, Year 4 went on an amazing visit to the Dewsbury Minster.  We learned a lot about the faith of Christianity. For example, we were told about the font and how babies are baptised and become a member of the church. Even grown-ups can be baptised. We discovered fascinating facts about Dewsbury and how Christianity first came into Dewsbury in AD 627. There were plaques on the church walls to symbolise important people or families who have passed away. We learned many new terms related to Christianity: Bishop, Vicar, altar, font, organ, baptism, chalice and paten.
