Topic Activity

Task 1:

Our topic this half term in RE is why Easter matters to Christians. At Easter, Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus in many ways. One way is decorating eggs. For Christians the custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. Christians remember that Jesus, after dying on the cross, rose from the dead. The first eggs given at Easter were birds eggs. These eggs were painted in bright colours to give them further meaning as a gift.
This week we would like you to have a go at decorating an egg. It can be a real egg or a picture of an egg. Please send pictures of your decorated eggs for us to display on this page.


Task 2

Please complete the set task on PurpleMash. The task is to write about Spring using the picture bank and word bank provided on the task. Once you have completed it please hand it in to be marked. You can hand your work in on PurpleMash when you have finished it.



Task 3:

We would love to know how your bean plants are growing. Measure your bean plant and let us know how tall they are getting by emailing us. We will post each week to say who has got the tallest plant. Feel free to send us pictures too!
