Mrs O’Grady took us outside to practise our crowd scene! We waved our palm leaves and shouted, “Hosanna, hosanna!”
Next we chose our actors for in the drama. There was Jesus, his friends the disciples, the donkey owner and of course the crowd!
We did the acting through twice so more children could have a turn at being actors in the role play drama.
Jesus mounted the donkey and rode into Jerusalem. The crowds along the way waved palm branches and lay down their coats on the ground. They recognised Jesus as a king, God’s Son!
Mrs O’Grady recorded our celebration of Jesus entering Jerusalem.
After that another group of children did the acting all over again. It helped us to really think about the things that happened and the order that they happened in!
We chose a new person to be Jesus, another to be the donkey’s owner and also some new frieds for Jesus…. Here they are!
