RE Week – Easter

Our theme for RE this week is ‘Salvation.’ We enjoyed experiencing the story of Easter through an Easter labyrinth. We walked through the story, making use of different spaces throughout the school to help us visualise where Jesus went and what he did there.

Watching Jesus enter Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
Jesus washed his disciples’ feet. We washed our hands to help us remember that Jesus made his disciples clean.
At the Last Supper, Jesus and his disciples shared bread and wine.
Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. We went to Abigail’s Garden and used salt dough to create representations of our fears and worries. We hid these in the garden and left them behind to carry on our Easter journey.
We tried to stand still to listen to an excerpt of the story that told us about the crucifixion of Jesus. We smelled the vinegar that the soldiers offered him to drink.
The empty tomb!
Listening to the account of the resurrection.

In the afternoon, Reverend Simon came in to talk about how Christians in Tideswell celebrate Easter. We particularly enjoyed hot cross buns. Yum!

Making our Easter cards.

We made tissue paper collage hearts to remind us that God forgives and heals the brokenhearted.

We imagined how the different characters in the story felt in the events of the crucifixion. The children wrote down their ideas and placed them in the cross.

We have also choreographed a dance to the song ‘There is a green hill in a far away country.’ We will present this in church on Friday.

Happy Easter to you all!
