Once again, there was a great variety of crafts and activities at this year's Easter Workshop, kindly organised by Alana Poulton and Louisa Halliday.
From 10:00 until 12:00, children could indulge in lovely messy creations, such as chocolate nests, finger print Easter cards and hand print designs.
They made sheep and finger puppet rabbits, and older ones helped make an Easter wreath. After hot cross buns, biscuits and drinks, we all gathered round for the Easter story, told in twelve stages. Each stage was marked by the opening of a plastic egg and guessing at the significance of the small object inside. The whole Easter journey, recently undertaken by pupils at the school over two weeks of collective worship, had clearly been well absorbed by the children at the Workshop (ages ranging from 5 to 10) – their confidence and enthusiasm when describing how the objects represented the different parts of the story was very impressive.
The weather being kind that day, we were able to go outside for the very popular parachute games and, of course, the Easter egg hunt. A great start to the Easter weekend!
