In R.E. we have been learning about the Easter story and how Christians celebrate Easter. We found that they send Easter cards, have Easter eggs and enjoy hot cross buns. We discussed as a class what the cross on the hot cross bun symbolised. The children were able to discuss the link between the cross on the hot cross bun and the cross Jesus died on. We also discussed whether Easter is a sad or a happy festival and the children debated their thoughts. As a class we decided Easter is a happy time because Jesus was risen. As part of our learning about Easter we worked in teams to bake hot cross buns and even washed up after ourselves.
