At Religion class this week we have been learning all about churches. We went over to the cathedral to look at all the different parts of the Church. We found the prayer desk, pulpit, pew, paten, font, chalice, nave, lectern, and Communion Table. We studied the stained glass window by Edward Burne- Jones. Edward Burne-Jones made it because Francis Currey was good to the people of Lismore. Francis Currey worked in the Lismore Castle during the famine. Francis Currey was humble and just. Humble means not boasting about what your good at. Just means fair and kind. Lots of people died during the famine. Francis Currey was born in 1814 and died in 1896. He was one of Ireland’s earliest photographers. He was employed by the Duke of Devonshire at Lismore Castle.
On Tuesday we went on a nature walk to look at deciduous and evergreen trees. This is a picture of us standing under the Sweet Chestnut tree behind the Cathedral. Last October we collected the sweet chestnuts that had fallen from it. We are going to go back in a few weeks time to see the tree covered in leaves.
