Ash class have been learning about Holy week. We started by thinking about Jesus’s journey into Jerusalem – Palm Sunday. We found out that Jesus chose to arrive on a donkey, a very lowly animal. Jesus was very well known in the area, the crowds were pleased to see him and welcomed him shouting, “Hosanna in the Heighest, welcome King”. In class we made palm branches and welcomed Jesus.
Next we thought about the last meal that Jesus shared with his disciples. They had gathered in the upper room to celebrate the Jewish festival of Passover. Jesus used bread and wine to help his disciples understand how to remember him.
