Talking Point

Look at the pictures of the three crosses. 

What do you notice?

Which do you think is the palm cross? Why?

Thinking back to last week's learning, which cross links to which aspect of Holy Week? 

Create it! 

 

Depending on what you have at home, I would like you to decorate your own cross. 

- You could use lollipop sticks and wrap wool around it

- Use the template below and colour it

- Use the template below and cover it with different materials e.g tissue paper
