Lent - Giving (updated 11.04.17)
Our mannequin challenge
As part of a whole school project, we have produced a mannequin challenge for two of the 'Stations of the Cross'. They are Jesus meets his Mother and Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry his cross. We have created a mixture of the actual scene that Jesus encountered and our own interpretation.
Jesus meets his Mother
Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus
We watched a video about Palm Sunday. We then recalled the time when Jesus was greeted by crowds waving Palms. Our mannequin challenge helped us to explore the Question - Why do Christians remember Palm Sunday?
We would plan a party
We recalled the events of Maundy Thursday. We learned about Jesus' meeting in the Upper room, washing of feet and the Last Supper. Finally, we thought about Jesus' invitation to pray in the garden with the disciples.
We watched the video for 'The story of three trees'. Then we went on a stations journey around the classroom to recall the stages of Jesus' final footsteps before his death.
