Easter Experience 2018
As part of Christian teaching and learning within school, we have spent time exploring the significance of the Easter story. The children and staff had the opportunity to explore four key parts of the story: Palm Sunday; The Last Supper; The Crucifixion and The Resurrection, by visiting four activity stations around the school. Each year group re-enacted the Palm Sunday story complete with real donkeys (called Louis and Bella) which was a memorable experience! School governors explored the Last Supper with the classes using drama and song. We were also very fortunate to have a local member of the clergy – Rev. Melanie Otto – lead learning about the crucifixion story through drama, writing and song. Finally, the children went to visit the tomb and discussed the fact that it was empty as Jesus was alive! It was a really successful day; the children were engaged and demonstrated a deeper understanding through their questions and responses to some very memorable activities.
