Year 1 RE Inspire Workshop

1 May 2014

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, just as he said." (Matthew 28:5-6)

Once again the Year 1 parents were invited into school for a creative morning to make a Paschal Candle with their child. The children have been learning about the special symbols on the Paschal Candle and got to share this knowledge with their family.

Following the workshop the children were very proud to be able to display their candles in church at their class Mass before taking them home to share with their families and remember the importance of the season of Easter.

Some of the many comments both parents and children wrote in our evaluation forms can be read below:

"I enjoyed making my candle with my Mom." Year 1 child.

"I liked working with my Dad in school. It was fun." Year 1 child.

"Lovely to spend time with my child at school!" Year 1 parent.

"Lovely to come into school and to get involved with making a Paschal Candle with my daughter." Year 1 parent.
