In R.E, Year 3 have been learning about the Easter story. We have discussed how this is a time of both sadness and joy for Christians. On Friday we were lucky enough to go over to church for an Easter experience where we took part in lots of different Easter activities!
The servant king
We talked about how Jesus washed the disciples feet at the Last Supper and some of us were lucky enough to experience this!
The Last Supper
We then re-enacted the Last Supper and talked about how this was a very special night for Jesus and his disciples.
The Garden of Gethsemane
Mrs Hynes talked to us about the garden of Gethsemane and we discussed how Jesus might have felt while he was there. We also reflected on times in our lives when we may have felt the same way.
Mrs Ireland talked to us about the day Jesus was crucified. We talked about how Jesus would have felt on this day.
Sharing our sorrows
We thought about how sad this time is. We then wrote our own prayer for someone we care about and placed it on the cross.
Pam talked to us about the day Jesus rose from the dead. We talked about the tomb and what it would have been like.
Year 3 had such a lovely morning in church and we learned so much about the Easter story.
