‘Easter experience’ for youngsters

Westbury Leigh Primary School children explored the Easter story through a range of exciting and thought-provoking interactive experiences, which included real life donkeys and an empty tomb being constructed on the school site.

The school says, “The aims of ‘Experience Easter’ were to develop the children’s understanding of the key parts of the Easter story, to recognise the significance of this to Christians and have the opportunity to personally reflect and respond.

“Year groups took it in turn to visit the four stations, which were led by teachers, governors and Rev. Melanie Otto. The stations were: Palm Sunday, The Last Supper, The crucifixion and The Resurrection. When learning about Palm Sunday the children re-enacted Jesus visiting Jerusalem with real  donkeys.”
