Easter eggs... Just for eating?
We were very excited today as we started our RE lesson with a pass the parcel. Under each layer of wrapping paper was a picture from the Easter story. Sam and Caitlyn very efficiently, and with some discussion along the way, put them in order for us before we reminded ourselves of the story. Under the last layer was an Easter egg and we discussed why we have Easter eggs at Easter. We all know they are very yummy to eat but why do we have them?
We identified that baby chicks, lambs and ducklings are born around Easter time so eggs can represent new life. Also, Jesus sacrificed his life to save us from our sins so eggs can symoblise the life Jesus gave us.
Here are some of our Easter eggs and explanations.
