"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Monks Day

This week Year 4 visited Pershore Abbey to learn about its history and the lifestyle of the monks that once lived there. We wore habits and walked to the Abbey in silence!


When we arrived, a candle was lit for each of us. We then learnt all about the monks using the stories in the stained glass windows. We then went outside to learn the history of the building.


Finally, we sat down to a meal. We were only allowed to sit when instructed and had to stop eating when the Abbot did. The whole meal took place in silence and we had to use sign language to ask for more food and drink.


We really enjoyed the experience.
