Write a number sentence to show the different ways you have made 10.


Session 4 - RE

Our new topic this term is Salvation – Why do Christians put a cross in an Easter garden?

Learning Question: Why are Christians given palm crosses?


Watch the video of Mrs Holmes sharing the story of Palm Sunday. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and crowds came to see him. They waved palm leaves, cheered and shouted ‘Hosanna’. Hosanna means ‘save us’, the people wanted Jesus to save them.


Jesus later died on a cross to save us all. Christians have palm crosses at this time to remember the happy time of Jesus in Jerusalem and waving the palm leaves in excitement. The palm cross made from the palm leaf reminds Christians of the happy time but also that Jesus died on a cross.



Cut out a palm leaf from green paper to wave for Jesus. Make a cross from paper too. Can you retell the story so far? Click on the link and join in with the song.
