11:35-11:45/2:35-2:45 Conclusion (pupil and teacher evaluations handed in) 



Pupils and staff will have time to get into their groups and look around. There may be artefacts around the church for them to spot and music to listen to. SEN children who may need to touch or see these up close can move around with their supporting adult. 



Led by the Church leader & schools worker; pupils will be introduced to the themes of the event using an Easter Egg illusion. What do we know so far? What do we want to find out? 



(Pupils will have the chance to take two workshops each. See below for more about allocating the groups) 


  • Drama –children join in with ‘Whoosh’ method acting out scenes from the Easter Bible narrative.

  • Sing & Beats – Using a combination of singing and percussion, children interact with the sounds of Easter today.

  • Body Moves – Using physical actions & body shapes to express something of the joy of the Resurrection.

  • Banner – pupils use fabrics to create a heart and explore the theme of Jesus’ sacrifice and God’s love through art.

  • Stained Glass Painting – Pupils design an Easter-inspired “stained glass window” onto A6 acetate sheets.

  • Easter Gardens – small groups create own “natural” 3D Easter Garden scene with signs of ‘new life’.

Sounds great, how do I sign my classes up?
