'That they may have life, life in all its fullness' John 10:10

Cedar Class - Why did Jesus’ followers shout ‘Hosanna’? Why are palm leaves found in the Church at Easter?

Year 5 started the day by adding our flowers to the school cross. We then started by learning all about the events of Palm Sunday. We learnt about the events of the first Palm Sunday and then learnt about the traditions that have developed since then. We were surprised to earn the symbolism behind Jesus arriving on a donkey and the real meaning behind the shouts of 'Hosanna'. 

We used this learning to create a soundtrack that represented the joy felt when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem. We enjoyed being out in the sun to do this and we are excited to share these with you below.

In the afternoon, we made palm leaf crosses (which was very tricky!) and Easter cards for our friends and family. We ended a lovely day with an Easter egg hunt.
