#10 – Sharing Books

Sit and share a book together from our reading area. Develop their language skills, expand their imagination or even introduce non-readers to colourful pictures.

#11 – Making Connections

Our stained glass and saxon cross puzzles exercise technical skills such as pattern spotting and dexterity. Repeating the same puzzle multiple times makes it easier, and once mastered, there’s another to get started on!

#15 – Dressing Up

Inspire your little one(s) to use their imagination with our dress-up area. Who have they dressed up as? What sound do they make? How do they walk? Play a part in their world and dress up yourself!

#20 – Mini Artists

Our colouring area lets children bring their ideas to life or recreate something they can see in the cathedral, communicating how they see things. Make different kinds of marks to create different effects, showing them the effect of their own motor skills.

#40 – Happy History

Our cathedral probably looks very different from a child’s normal environment at home or school. Explore why things look or feel the way they do, why modern things look different from old things. Venues like ours are a perfect introduction to history and art.
