Junior students are currently studying Christianity in RE lessons, exploring whether and how certain festivals or ceremonies, including Easter, show that Christianity is still a strong religion or whether the ideas and beliefs have been diluted, altered or forgotten by modern day society.
To support their studies in RE and deepen their understanding of the Easter story, students in Year 6 attended a workshop at Wakefield Cathedral.
The workshop began by looking at the miracles of Jesus and how his popularity was received by the political and religious leaders of the time. Students then went on to reenact key events of the story including sharing grape juice and flatbreads at their very own last supper. The workshop allowed a deeper understanding of the wider themes of the crucifixion and the movement of Christianity from then on.
