LO: Think, talk and ask questions about whether the story of Easter has anything to say to them about sadness, hope or heaven, exploring different ideas
Discuss what pupils find happy and sad about the story of Easter. Looking at a colour chart, discuss
which colours pupils think are happy and which they think are sad. Pupils place template of crosses
onto a plain piece of white paper. Smudge around outside with oil pastels so when template is lifted off there’s a blank cross surrounded by colour. Each pupil should make a cross in ‘happy colours’ and a cross in ‘sad colours’. The first should be filled with parts of the story that make pupils feel happy, and the second with parts that make them feel sad.
Discuss some other emotions; for example, angry, excited, surprised, worried, scared. Pupils show these on their faces and bodies and talk about times when they feel each one. Show pictures of the five parts of the story included in the labyrinth. Can pupils match at least one emotion to each part of the story? ‘Happy’ and ‘sad’ can also be used as part of this emotion-matching activity.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
