Challenges for w/c 6th April 2020




Yesterday, my sister set the children the task of completing a maze that they had drawn out in the garden.  Millie and Jacob had to work together to complete the maze and then drew out their own maze for my sister and brother in law to complete.  It took a while, made them think and work as a team but was certainly a great activity to do out in the sun.  You can draw it out in chalk in your back garden.  Why not ask your parents if they'll do one for you and then you can have a go too!  Don't forget to take lots of pictures.

Can you recreate any of the stories from Holy Week in the form of a little drama?  Think about how you could do this with your family, take pictures or even a video and post it on the blog.  You've got Palm Sunday, Last Supper and the Washing of the Feet but to name a few.  See how creative you can be.



Good Friday is a day where we can reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus.  Take the time to reflect on this important day and create some artwork to show how this changed our lives.



Can you write your own prayer for Easter Sunday?  Think about how important this magnificent event is and use this to write your own prayer.



Take part in Joe Wicks' workout tomorrow morning and get dressed in Fancy Dress again.  Can you wear a different costume to last week though?
