Lent

This week we have been looking at The Stations of the Cross and remembering what happened to Jesus.  We talked about how Jesus, and those around him, would be feeling and we thought about what we could take from this.

We also remembered what our Lenten promises were and came up with some ideas of how we could keep them going right up until Easter.

 

Palm Sunday

In RE this week Year 2 have been learning about Holy Week. The children began by learning about Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. They learnt how he travelled on a donkey and how the crowd greeted him when he arrived. They laid down their cloaks and waved palms shouting ‘Hosanna! Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’

Gospels – Collective Worship

Gospels – Collective Worship

This week in RE Year 2 have been learning about the Gospels. They know that they word Gospel means Good News. The children know there are 4 Gospels, we find them in the New Testament and they were written by four of Jesus’ followers; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

For Collective Worship this week Ethan brought in his own Bible from home. He was able to show us some stories in the his Bible that belonged to the Gospels.

The children stood to greet the Gospel and sang Alleluia as Ethan carried the Gospel to the lectern. The children then made the sign of the cross on their forehead, lips and heart to show the think about the Good News, speak the Good News and live the Good News.
