Palm Sunday

Hedgehog Class have been learning about what Christians believe about Palm Sunday. We looked at a palm cross and compared it with a palm leaf. We discussed how the leaf had changed shape. The palm cross reminds Christians that, although the crowds welcomed Jesus, some people were jealous of him – and, a week later, Jesus was arrested and killed on a cross. Jesus’ dying was sad and terrible but we know that Christians believe it is not the end of the story. We know that the palm crosses remind Christians of Palm Sunday and of Jesus dying.

We did some different activities to help us remember the story of Palm Sunday and to remember the palm cross as a special symbol…
