Good Friday Collective Worship

Good Friday Collective Worship

Year 2 planned and led a beautiful collective worship on Friday focusing on Good Friday.

The children thought about what happened to Jesus on Good Friday and how he would have felt. The children thought carefully about what we learn from Good Friday – Jesus showed us how to be brave, have courage, never give up, trust in God and do as God wants.

The children then shared what they had written on their crosses which explained how Jesus has helped them through what happened on Good Friday.
