Year 1 RE Inspire Workshop

18 April 2013

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 took their Paschal Candle home so that they could 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:

"Working with the children is just great!" - Year 1 parent.

"I liked making the candle with Grandad." - Year 1 child.

"I adore arts and crafts and helping the children in our favourite subject. Thank you for letting us be part of this special time." - Year 1 parent.

"I like working with Mommy." - Year 1 child.
