Easter -the death and resurrection of Jesus

Explore the story of Easter as you play and learn together.

These resources can be used:

To help your pupils grasp the connections between Easter celebrations and the biblical account of the death and resurrection of Easter. Why do we have Easter eggs? Why is new life associated with Easter?
To explore emotions. What emotions can they identify in the story? Are there times we feel like that too?
Outdoors! Exploring the story outside is fun. Search for or make cross shapes. Roll eggs down the hill. Many of our learning activities are designed for (or are easily adaptable to) outdoor learning.
