Children in Class 1 have been learning about the Easter story and why Christians celebrate Easter.
The children started by learning about Palm Sunday. They retold the story through drama and used what they had learnt to write about the important events that took place on Palm Sunday.
As the children continued to learn about the Easter story, we discussed the significance of the cross as a religious symbol. They enjoyed decorating a wooden cross (which was made for us by Mrs Welch) with flowers made from tissue paper and painted egg cartons. We even took the cross with us to Forest School.
At Forest school, the children made Easter gardens and enjoyed an Easter egg hunt with a mathematical twist. Their efforts were rewarded with a treat from the Easter Bunny which went down a treat!
Wishing you all a happy Easter from Class 1.
