Today, Monday 21st March we began our day with thoughts about Palm Sunday. We talked about what we saw when we went to Church on Sunday. We sang our song Hosanna, Hosanna.
You can sing it at home too if you follow this link.
Then we listened to a story about Jesus’ experiences during Palm Sunday. We enjoyed it!
Then we coloured in some palm leaves in any colour of green we liked. Next we cut around the leaf. Finally we cut between the palm fronds on the dark linews. We were practising our colouring and cutting skills.
We talked about what we were doing and some of us sang as we worked. We moved the crayons smoothly over the leaf and pressed quite hard to make the colour bright. When we had finished we got a pair of scissors and began to cut around the outside of the leaf. We worked carefully holding the scissors as Mrs de Koning had taught us.
We helped each other and talked about how well others were doing. We put all our scraps of paper into the rubbish bin and also put the scissors away in the holder.
After we finished we laid it onto our display sheet and read the words together. We will us the palm leaves later in the day, before we staple them onto the white sheet and hang it in our classroom.
