Week beginning 15th April - Easter Week

This week we have listened to the story of Easter. We heard how Jesus rode through Jerusalem on a donkey. We retold the story using leaf 'palm branches' and shouting 'Hosanna!'. Then we heard about the Last Supper and how Jesus washed His friends' feet. Mrs Hands washed our feet too! We heard about how Jesus died on a cross, and we realised this was a sad day for Jesus's disciples. We ate hot cross buns. Finally we heard the good news that Jesus rose from the dead. 

We made Easter cards for our families. We used paint and cotton wool buds to decorate egg shapes. We had chocolate playdough which we used to make our own Easter eggs decorated with jewels. We had bunnies and chicks to count in the Maths area. 

Outside we were busy planting peas, sweet peas, strawberry plants and potatoes. 

We made chocolate cornflake cakes. We melted the chocolate and added it to cornflakes, before mixing and filling our bun cases with the mixture.
