A visit from Father Ian

In RE, Year 1 have been learning about why Easter is important to Christians. We were very fortunate to welcome Father Ian from Holy Saviour Church into our classroom one afternoon. We shared out hot cross buns while Father Ian taught us about Holy Week and the significance of different events within that.

Year 1 had some very thoughtful questions for him such as "Why did Judas Iscariot betray Jesus?" Talking to Father Ian helped Year 1 to place the events of Holy Week in order and to understand a little more about the meaning of terms such as Palm Sunday and Good Friday.
