Y4 visit to St Annes

Y4 visited St Anne's church to learn about Easter. The children listened to the Easter Story and learnt that Jesus loves us because God loves us. The story was told by opening eggs as the important parts of the Easter Story:

Leaves are important because they represent Palm Sunday when the people greeted Jesus as he entered Jerusalem.

A cracker represents the bread that Jesus gave his disciples at the last supper.

Soap represents Jesus washing the feet of his disciples to show that it is good to help others. It is also symbolic of getting rid our sins – we need Jesus to make us clean and this is achieved because he was prepared to die for us on the cross.

The cup represents the suffering that Jesus was about to experience on the cross. Jesus knew this was God's will even though the task would be difficult.

Leather strips represents the rope used to tie Jesus up when he was arrested and a branch of thorns represents the crown of thorns placed on Jesus's.

A dice represents the soldiers who threw lots for his clothes while the bandage represents the clean linen cloth used to wrap his body in when buried in the tomb.

A stone represents the entrance to the tomb and the rumour that Jesus would rise again in 3 days.

Lastly the empty cup shows that the tomb was empty and that Jesus had risen from the dead and was alive.

The children then learnt a little about The Eucharist. Holy Communion is served by the priest and reminds a Christian about the last supper with Jesus.

A priest wears a while cowl to cover the imperfections we have as humans and the stole is to remind us that we can't do anything without God's help.

On the altar there is a chalice, a candle and a bible. The table is called an altar to remind us of the sacrifice that Jesus made. The bread given at Holy Communion is made without yeast to represent the unleavened bread that was eaten during the Last Supper.

As this bread had not been consecrated the children were able to taste it – most said it was tasteless!
