This is Holy Week – make it special by trying hard to do something extra kind and loving every day.
This weekend we celebrated Palm Sunday, the day that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and crowds of people ran alongside him waving palm leaves shouting:
’Hosanna, Hosanna to the Lord.’
If you were in school this week your teachers would have been doing all sorts of special activities with you to help you think about and understand the very special story of Easter.
Easter is the time when we remember what happened in Jesus’s life from his arrival in Jerusalem, His last meal with his friends, His trial and death on the Cross and the joy of Jesus’ rising from the tomb on Easter Sunday.
Below are some ideas you can do with your children during Holy Week.
