In R.E. we read the story of Jesus’ resurrection from different viewpoints…

…Mary Magdalene, Mary, Mother of Jesus, Peter and Thomas.  

We discussed the difference between faith, seeing and believing and recapped on the sequence of events leading to the Resurrection. 

We considered how the different characters felt and then in pairs interviewed each other.  We showed we could be empathetic and explore how the Resurrection felt for different people.

Happy Easter!

This week in Nursery we have been listening to the Easter story in the Bible. Madeleine told Mrs Terrell afterwards that the “sad bit was when Jesus died when the soldiers put him on the cross and the happy bit was when God made him alive again.”

We thought about ‘new life’ by making a chick Easter card and we made chocolate Easter nests and eggs in our kitchen.

The Easter Bunny visited us in Nursery and left muddy footprints on our floor and carrots in the sandpit! We enjoyed hunting for the eggs he had hidden . He also left us a basket of chocolate treats for us to take home.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Easter service at Tankersley St Peter’s church

On Wednesday 5th April we all walked up to Tankersley St Peter’s Church to take part in the Easter service. Each class performed a song about the Easter story and the whole congregation sang hymns including There is a green hill far away, Servant King and We have a King who rides a donkey. We also listened to readings about the Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, Jesus washing his disciples’ feet and Good Friday. Canon Hale shared the story of Jesus’ resurrection and we all really enjoyed his address. The service ended with a very enthusiastic rendition of the song “Celebrate”. Well done to all and happy Easter!

Pancake day

 

It was Shrove Tuesday this week and the Nursery children found out about why we celebrate Pancake day before Lent begins. We looked at a pancake recipe to find out what ingredients we needed to make pancakes. Mrs Flannery demonstrated how to make pancakes. She was really good at tossing and catching them ( until she dropped one!)

The best bit was eating them! After we washed our hands we had to choose to put jam or lemon/orange juice and sugar on top of our delicious , yummy pancakes.

We must say a HUGE thank you to Wendy Oldfield and Mrs Flannery for all their hard work in the Nursery kitchen.

Holy Week in a bag…

 

We made such creative items to help tell the story of what happened to Jesus during Holy Week. Also, we used our Bibles to find references and quotations to help us to describe the significance of each item.

They are AMAZING. Come into year 6 and take a look.
