The children in Year 1 have been learning about how we celebrate Easter. First we watched the story of Easter and how Jesus died on the cross. Then we discussed how Easter is celebrated at home. We came up with many different ideas including having a family meal on Easter Sunday, eating hot cross buns, going on an Easter egg hunt and of course eating chocolate eggs. The children tried some hot cross buns in class and we talked about the symbolism of the cross. In class, all of the pupils made an Easter decoration to give to a friend or family member. In addition, many children and their families have been busy at home this week making Easter cards. decorating eggs and Easter bonnets, drawing Easter pictures and making delicious things to eat. We hope everyone has an enjoyable Easter break. Happy Easter!
