Holy Week Homework


Da iawn pawb for the fantastic work you have been posting on SeeSaw! I'm very proud of all of your hard work and glad to see you are keeping safe and enjoying your home learning! 


As it is now the Easter Holidays for two weeks, there will not be work set as we appreciate that you need a break from your learning and a chance to catch up with the activities set that you may not have completed yet. 


However, we are now in the final week of Lent, which is called 'Holy Week'. It is when Christians remember the last week of Jesus' life and it is the most important time in the liturgical year. Our Easter holidays homework will be activities based on the events of Holy Week.


See below for the suggested ideas for what you can do on the different days in Holy Week. You can choose any of the activities you would like to complete!


There are also plenty of further activities and ideas to keep you occupied over the two weeks if you wish to use them! 


Upload any work you complete onto your SeeSaw account!


Have fun and stay safe! Enjoy your time at home with your families, 

Miss Stone smiley
