Year 5 had the opportunity to visit St George's Church this week for their Why? Easter session with City Praise.
On 27th March we walked to Saint George's Church to learn more about EASTER. When we arrived they gave us a deeper understanding of this special event in the Christian calendar. Some of the things that we learnt were that the Roman Emperor wasn't actually going to crucify Jesus but he didn't want to be shouted at by the crowd, so he killed Jesus.
We were also taught that Jesus came back to life after he was killed for doing the right thing. We were informed that Jesus was very important and was a King. Everyone believed he was a real King because he was a descendent of David.

In the afternoon we went to St George's Church for Why? Easter. We started off with a friendly greeting before Adrian and Arjun used their noses to roll a chocolate egg down the aisle. It was very close but Arjun just about won (both got to keep their eggs .)
Next we did a 'True' or 'False' game between the two classes - Barn Owls won!
The people at the Church asked us Easter related questions and each child had to hold up a piece of paper indicating if they felt it was true or false.
After some time, we had made some cross keyrings out of beads and string. It was difficult for some people but other people got to grips with it quickly.
Overall we had a lovely afternoon and hopefully we get to come again for another Why? session.
