This Sunday, 5th April will be Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week - the last week of Jesus' life. On Palm Sunday we remember when Jesus came out of the desert and the crowds welcomed him, shouting, 'Hosanna! Hosanna!' How would the people there have been feeling? How would Jesus have been feeling? If you were there, what would you have done?
Read the PowerPoint together and then complete the comprehension activity.
During this week or over the Easter holidays, read the PowerPoints below. They will take you through the rest of Holy Week, leading up to Easter. Discuss: who betrayed Jesus? What feast were they celebrating on Thursday? What happened on Good Friday? Why do you think it is called Good Friday? How would you have felt on each of those days if you were Jesus' friend. What would you have done or said?
