class. school and setting our vision for the future.
All the children have been involved in a week of RE as we are leading up to the
important Christian festival of Easter. The year groups have been looking into
some big questions, such as: Why does Easter matter to Christians? Why do
Christians call the day Jesus died, 'Good Friday'? What did Jesus do to save
human beings? What difference does resurrection make for Christians? See
photos of some of the work that has been produced. We look forward to
looking at celebrations of other faiths going forward.
I wish you a really Happy Easter and hope you manage to have a break. I am
looking forward to 'going slow' for a week or so and recharging my batteries for the Summer Term :-)
Many Blessings, Mrs Norton
