Year 1's RE Inspire Workshop

16 April 2015

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

On Thursday 16th April, the Year 1 children joined with parents and friends for our Easter RE Inspire workshop.

The workshop began with a prayer and then we reflected on our Easter holidays and learnt more about the Paschal Candle. We discussed the importance of the Paschal Candle and the children understood that it is lit on Easter Sunday to represent Jesus's Resurrection.

We worked together to make our own Paschal Candles .We used card, paper, decorative flowers and pins to construct our candles and then placed them on Easter prayer focus area.

We had a wonderful time creating our candles and were very proud of our work and the support we received. Our workshop ended with a beautiful prayer that helped us during this Easter season.

"A lovely activity with very good instructions, lots of materials and well organised."

"It was a lovely morning spending time with my Grandson helping him make the Easter Candle."
