B-Tales Easter Performance

The B-Tales in action!

On Wednesday 28th March we enjoyed another fantastic performance form the B-Tales Theatre Group.

The B-Tales came into school to share their Easter production which tells the story of Jesus’ life, the miracles he performed followed by the Events of Holy Week leading to Jesus’ crucifixion.

The production was excellent and enjoyed by all of the children and the staff too!

One child commented, “It was amazing, really funny and told us so much about what happened to Jesus.”



Agony in the Garden

Year 5 acting out the events of The Agony in the Garden

On Wednesday 28th March it was the turn of Year 5 to share their Holy Week Assembly.

Year 5 presented the Agony in the Garden where after Jesus had prayed to his Father in Heaven he was betrayed by Judas and captured by the soldiers.

One child commented, “Jesus was human at this time, and understood how it felt to be let down.  This reminds us that we are sometimes let down by others and sometimes we let others down, but it’s important to say sorry and forgive each other.”

Well done Year 5!
