Week 1 Religious Education- Christianity
LI- To ask questions about Holy Week and retell the events
Making Sense of the text
1.) I can record what I know and what I want to find out
2.) I can order and explain the events in Holy Week
3.) I can create my own timeline
Discuss What do you know about what happened to Jesus as Easter?
Create a mind map like the example below. One colour for 'What you already know,' and another colour for 'What you want to find out- questions'.
Lets find out more about Holy Week! Please watch the video on the link below and read the information provided about Holy Week- Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
Please create your own timeline for the events during Holy Week. You can use the template provided. For each day, I would like you to draw a picture thinking about different symbols you could include to represent what happened that day.
Label the different days in the correct order- Good Friday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunday and Palm Sunday (these are not in the correct order).
Talking Time- Talk to an adult at home to explain what happened on the different days. Use the stem sentences below to support your discussion. I have completed the first one as a model for you.
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter Sunday. It was when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem riding a donkey.
Maundy Thursday is ________. On Maundy Thursday Christians remember ___________.
Good Friday is _________. It was when _____________.

Give as much detail as you can to retell what happened during Holy Week.
