The Easter Story
This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the Easter story and finding out why Christians celebrate Easter. We started off by reading the story of Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Crowds of people gathered and waved palm leaves to celebrate. We took it in turns to dress as a donkey and help Jesus through the crowd as they waved their leaves that they had cut out of green paper. We then learnt all about Jesus having the last supper with his friends and had a special supper with biscuits and juice. We also learnt that Jesus washed his friends' feet and Annabel and Carol washed all the children's feet. On Wednesday we read the story of The Angel and the Dove and heard about Jesus dying on the cross. This prompted a sensitive conversation about people we know who have died. The children all made their own Easter gardens and decorated crosses. Our last day was a fantastic Easter celebration as we made Easter nest cakes and had an Easter egg hunt. The children were excited to find out that the story had a happy ending and Jesus rose from the dead.
