Year One visited All Saints Church in Sanderstead on 29th April 2022

On Friday 29th of April, Year One went on their first ever school trip! We went to visit our Year One Class Governor, Reverend Jeremy Groombridge, at All Saints Church in Sanderstead. We took two buses to the church and two buses back to school. We very much enjoyed our various bus rides! We particularly liked whizzing up and down the hills on our journey. For many of us, it was our first experience of catching a bus!

Reverend Groombridge was there to welcome us at the church. He gave us a tour of the church and we were told lots of interesting facts about its’ history. Next, we dressed up in some of Reverend Groombridge’s special ceremonial outfits. We were then introduced to Susan Thomas, who is a Church Warden at All Saints Church. After lunch, Reverend Groombridge played music to us on the church organ. We were very impressed with how well he played! We sang along to some hymns that we have been learning at school. Before leaving, we had the opportunity to ask Reverend Groombridge and Susan Thomas questions about the church and our visit.

We were all given a lovely goody bag to take home with us. Hopefully this will provide us with a lasting memory of the trip!
