Isolation Activities

Isolation Activities

In light of the current situation we are posting some resources here and on our Facebook page to keep you entertained and to provide educational activities for individuals and families isolating during the current crisis.

The first activity relates to Poetry and a chance to enter a competition

Awesome Adventures Poetry

We are encouraging young people aged 7-13 to write a poem and submit it to our Worcester Cathedral Poetry Competition. The theme of the competition is “Awesome Adventures” and young people can use the attached guidance developed by our Poet in Residence to develop a poem. Alternatively, they may wish to write about their recent visit to the Cathedral. The deadline for entries is the 4th May 2020.

Manuscript Writing

Learn how to write like a medieval monk, and create documents like ones in our library, using this resource. Just download and print it. 

Family Activities

We regularly offer FREE activities for children and families during the school holidays. These are usually suitable for Primary and Pre-School aged children unless specified otherwise. Past activities include rock and fossil craft days, Tudor themed activities, making a clay gargoyle, stained glass pictures, brass rubbings, designing Easter eggs and fishing games.

Our next activities will be in the summer holidays from the 24-26 August 2020.
