Good Morning Year 1 and welcome to Holy Week
We will be looking very carefully at the events of Holy Week as we travel through this week.
First of all I want you to make sure that you exercise with Joe today, and make sure you get outside in your garden or yard in this nice weather. That will make you feel happier and ready for work.
I want you to write some sentences today. please find the sheet below and make up some super sentences. Don't forget capital letters, full stops or question marks or even exclamation marks in your work. Remember finger spaces! I would also like to see lots of adjectives (describing words) in there too. Please write your sentences in your orange lined book not on the worksheet as you will be able to write more this way. Don't forget the date at the top of the page.
I would then like you to complete the column addition sheets that you started last week. If you did more than I asked then perhaps your grown up could write you some more in the big Yellow exercise book.
Then, could you please read the following with your grown up and, in your big yellow exercise book make your own celebration picture with happy, joyful words around it, making it as colourful as you can in order to celebrate Jesus entering Jerusalem. Don't forget to put palm leaves around it too.
The Story of Palm Sunday
As Jesus came closer to Jerusalem, he asked two of his disciples to go ahead of Him. He said, "When you get to the town, you will see a donkey tied up. Untie it, and bring it to me. If anyone asks you about taking the donkey, just tell them, 'The Lord needs it and He will bring it back as soon as He's done with it.'"
So, the disciples did as Jesus asked. They soon found the donkey tied at a doorway. As they were untying it, some people were standing nearby visiting. They didn't recognise the men and asked, "What are you doing? Why are you untying the donkey?"
They replied just as Jesus had told them to. Explaining that the Lord needed it, the people let them go.
When they brought the donkey to Jesus, some of the disciples took off their coats and laid them on the donkey's back. They did this out of respect for Jesus. Then Jesus rode on the donkey towards Jerusalem.
As He was travelling, some people saw Jesus coming and came running towards Him. They had heard He might be coming and they wanted to see him because he had just helped a dead man come back to life.
One by one, they laid their coats on the ground for the donkey to step on. Even the people that weren't wearing coats ran to the fields and trees nearby and cut palm branches and laid them down.
These people knew that Jesus was special. It was like when a King or Queen would come to town, and people would roll out a red carpet for him or her to step on. This is what these people did for Jesus when they laid down their coats and branches.
As they got even closer to the town, more and more people noticed Jesus. A crowd surrounded Him and started to shout praises to Him for all the miracles He had done: "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna, Hosanna!"
The word Hosanna means save us. They said this because Jesus was helping them and doing amazing things. They wanted to praise Him, and they wanted Him to keep helping them.
These are just a couple of ideas of things you could create.
Have a lovely Monday. I can't wait to see your work, there may be more certificates to come!
