This is what we are up to for Holy Week. The activities are a bit limited as I have a chest infection (again) but I’ll update this post as the week goes on. We plan to have an Easter party on Good Friday. Not a brilliant choice of day but it’s the only one we can all make.
Bible stories start with the Raising of Lazarus which is the story for Sat gone. Then yesterday was Palm Sunday so the children heard the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem on the donkey. We are using the Hamlyn Catholic Children’s Bible. I can’t link to it because it is the one I had as a child and I’m not sure they still exist. I think the nearest approximation is The Golden Children’s Bible.
Instead of out usual Latin lesson the children listened to this:
They learned Via Crucis and Via Dolorosa and we looked at the first verse of the Stabat Mater.
I’ll try and update for each day.
Tues: Using the Faith and Life Book Jesus Our Life the children learned the prayer for the Stations of the Cross
We adore Thee Oh Christ and we bless Thee
Because by Thy Holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world.
It also happened that Ronan’s grammar sheet for today was about how to use capital letters when referring to God (Language of God Level A Catholic Heritage Curricula).
Having watched some of Market Kitchen yesterday the children have a refresher on the seder plate items and they watched this little vid of the first question’ Why is this night unlike any other night?’
