Church School Council Visit


Cerys and Daniel visit St Lawrence Church

On Wednesday 29th March Daniel and Cerys, year 6, visited St Lawrence Church, Alton, to meet up with representatives from all our Alton Church of England schools, and learn about the role the church played in the Alton Civil War. They learned about the clothes worn, how and why the battle started, and what it might have been like in the church. They also found out about the weapons used, having fun holding the authentic swords and muskets! Furthermore, they were treated to watching a musket being fired - it was so loud! Following this, a tour was given around the church to find out about its history and the many different features. Do ask Daniel or Cerys if you would like to know more!
