On Thursday, as part of RE ,Kestrels class visited Bressingham Church and we became Buildings archaeologists for an hour and half. It was fascinating!
Matthew Champion, a Buildings archaeologist ran the workshop. We had to find out what different parts of the church were called and when they were built. parts of Bressingham Church are Medieval but the pews weren't put in till the Tudor times!
The font had 13 different window designs on it.
Some parts of the pews were built in the Jacobean times.
Matthew explained and showed us examples of medieval graffiti - Bressingham church has many examples.
These are examples carved by the bell ringers. You can see the dates range from 1764 - 1961.
Kestrels class had a really interesting time finding out about the history of their local church.
On Friday, Canon Tony Billet visited the class to talk about and answer the children's questions about what the Church does for the community.
