Each year Year 5 pupils present the Passion of Our Lord. They begin with Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, his Last Supper, his arrest, Crucifixion, burial and his Resurrection. The story is told with prayers and songs.
The Stations of the Cross whole School reflection
Over three mornings during Holy Week the whole School community gather together in the Hall to reflect on the final hours of Jesus’ life. An image for each Station is displayed on the overhead and a candle is lit. Prayers and reflections are read by children and staff and we meditate with music and stillness.
Children are invited to visit the empty tomb of Jesus and reflect on his Resurrection. There are pieces of scripture telling the story of Mary Magdalene arriving at the tomb to find it empty. She is upset because she thinks the body of Jesus has been taken. Children can then read of Mary’s happiness when Jesus appears to her and proves he has truly risen from the dead.
