RE: I can retell the Christian story of Easter.
I can explain whether I think that Easter is a happy or sad time for Christians or a bit of both.
During this half term we are going to be learning about Christianity and thinking about why Easter matters to Christians.
Watch the BBC Teach video to remind yourself of the Easter story.
You have learnt about this previously in Reception and Year 1.
Then I would like you to either cut and stick the pictures in order to show the Easter story or you could write the story in sentences or draw your own pictures to retell the story using the comic strip template.
If you cut and sequence the pictures, I would like you to practise verbally retell the story.
Do you think that Easter is a happy or sad time for Christians?
Do you think that it is both?
Using what you know and understand about Easter so far, I would like you to write some sentences to explain whether you think Easter is a happy or sad time for Christians or a bit of both.
Use 'because' to explain your reasoning and try and link this to what you know and understand about Easter already.
