What is Easter?
Many children revisit the meaning of Easter every year through Religious Education lessons, assemblies and school plays. This is usually followed by a variety of traditional activities.
The theme of Easter is of course rooted in religion, which can make it difficult to cover in a multicultural setting. Whilst it’s important that children are aware of the cultural origins of the festival, the theme of Easter can easily be made more versatile by linking it to the idea of spring and new life
Spring into Easter
The themes of Easter and springtime go hand in hand, focusing on ‘new life’ through the story of Jesus’s resurrection and observing ‘new life’ in nature: for example, lambs, chicks, buds and flowers.
The ‘Spring into Easter’ poem links the meaning of Easter to the season in which it is celebrated. It is also an excellent opportunity to explore homophones – a key topic on the 2014 curriculum.
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings.
