We are pleased to announce

Key Stage 2 Time Travelling is moving online for 2021

When you book you will be sent information about how to access the learning materials on 5th March, but we will be sending details about what they are in advance in order for you to plan. To find out more, please see below.

We are requesting a voluntary donation of £2 per child if you are able to ask parents to pay as they would for a school trip. This is to help with our income which, in common with many sites, has taken a huge hit this year. All donations directly support Time Travelling. However, if this is a problem for your school don’t worry! You will be asked in the booking form if you are able to make a donation or not and we will send a payment request to you if you are.

Personalised virtual lessons are available to book directly with Diana.

Visits to the Minster for individual class bubbles will resume as soon as we are able. Please contact the education office to discuss your requirements:

Time Travelling Pilgrimage Days

Let us bring your RE teaching about Christian belief, worship and practice to life for you.

... we went to Southwell Minster ... the saddest part was leaving, but it was the best trip ever! (Oliver, Year 5 pupil)

While we clearly can’t expect comments such as this for 2021, we do hope we can offer you an alternative which is engaging and exciting in these challenging times.

Linked to the 2020 Notts Agreed Syllabus for RE, you will receive access to a suite of videos, materials and ideas for follow up and an act of collective worship from the Minster. You can also arrange a live webinar or Q&A session with a member of the team.

Activities: If you are a regular at Time Travelling you will recognise many of the activities, for example, Communion, Baptism, and prayer, but we are adding a session on Pilgrimage. We plan to have 8-10 short videos for you to choose, which are supported by materials for discussion and follow up. On a ‘normal’ Time Travelling day, you would engage in all activities in one day – this year, you might prefer to spread it over a week or several weeks: the materials will be available for the remainder of the academic year.

Music Downloads

We don’t know yet whether we will be able to use our well-loved Time Travelling songs in March, but feel free to download them and listen to them in your classroom if you wish.

To save any of the downloads below to your own PC, please right click on the "Download" link and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As".

One of the highlights of the Time Travelling day is normally singing together in the great Nave of the Cathedral. Our collection of songs were specially written, and we ask teachers to help children to learn two of them before their visit: Time Travelling and God Goes With Us.

You can download the tracks as either the complete song, or just as a backing track.

The details below are what you could have expected to see in a usual year and we hope that 2021 will see these exciting and informative days return to normal.

Time Travelling

Pilgrimage Days

Let us bring your RE teaching about Christian belief, worship and practice to life for you.

Securely linked to the Notts Agreed Syllabus for RE and the ‘Understanding Christianity’ resource, children take part in 6 (KS2) or 4 (KS1) activities designed to be practical and interactive as we welcome them to and help them get to know ‘their’ Cathedral.

... we went to Southwell Minster ... the saddest part was leaving, But it was the best trip ever! (Oliver, Year 5 pupil)

This twice yearly, week-long education event is our largest of the year and attracts thousands of pupils from schools across Nottinghamshire and beyond.

Guides: You will be assigned a ‘Pilgrim Guide’ (a member of our experienced volunteer team) who will meet, greet and befriend you on your visit, answering questions, ensuring you don’t get lost and that staff are provided with a much needed cuppa.

Activity Leaders: These are members of the volunteer team and will lead children’s activities and workshops, ensuring learning outcomes are met. Some are adult members of our choir or specialist story tellers or actors.

Activities: There are 24 ‘routes’ around the Minster, so not all children will do exactly the same activities. Each route contains a balance of themes, however, and we ensure that all children will make something to take away and receive a ‘Pilgrim Journal’, to put stickers on, reminding them of their activities and learning which is both a souvenir and useful prompt for follow up work back at school. Detailed information about activities and curriculum links can be found below.
