Our Easter Celebrations started a little differently this year.
We began our service in the school hall, singing together before beginning our walk up to the parish church behind a cross. Year 5/6 took it in turns to help carry the cross in our own Walk of Witness. This prompted much discussion as each child found the cross, though initially 'light', got heavier as they walked. There was also discussion about the barbarity of crucifixion, and how this was a normal punishment in Biblical times.
Once we arrived at the church, KS2 led us through the Easter story, interspersed with some enthusiastic singing. Cathy Dyson then said a few words before a rousing rendition of 'Celebrate'.
Many thanks to the members of the congregation who provided drinks and hot cross buns before our walk back to school.
Back at school there was egg decorating to be done before our Easter lunch, ably prepared by Lizzie.
The afternoon heralded the traditional egg rolling, egg and spoon race and crème egg hunt. Well done to all those who won.
A good day was had by all!
