This page gives details of the 2013 event - details of our next session will appear here nearer the time. Please contact us if you would like your school to take part in this.
During Lent we will be running Experience Easter again as a Team Project, and all of the eight Wythenshawe Primary Schools have been invitee to come take part!
Years five and six children, probably numbering over 250 in total, will come to William Temple Church during the week after Mothering Sunday (11th -15th March) and be led through the most tumultuous and adventure-filled week of Jesus’ earthly life, from the events of Palm Sunday, through him washing the disciples’ feet, and breaking bread together at the Last Supper, being alone in the Garden of Gethsemane on Maundy Thursday, and leading up to the Cross on Good Friday and the amazing story of the Resurrection on Easter Day!
I am sure all those who were involved as helpers last time - two years ago now – will be able to enthuse others about the wonderful time they had sharing this experience with the children and also how much they learnt as well! If you want to help please contact me!
On the Saturday morning there will be an open session for anyone to come along. No need to book – come and see! You will be made most welcome!
Capt Aidan Greenwood - Team Evangelist
William Temple Church
Session 1: 10 – 11.30 am
Session 2: 1.30 -3pm
Yrs 5 or 6
Dates / duration:
Mon 11th, Weds 13th, Thu 14th, Fri 15th March 2013
Minimum of 10 per session; 2 adults will be based on each ‘area’ at any one time, at least one of whom will be CRB checked, in addition to the teaching staff.
How it works
There are five ‘areas’ around the church building. The children are directed where to start, and move round every 10 minutes until they have all completed all five. Then all come back together in the Chapel for Area 6 – Resurrection.
Fruit squash and a biscuit will be provided at the end, before returning to school.
'One of the best RE lessons I've ever had.'
'Both our classes gained so much from the experience that you made the learning really clear to them. All the children and staff came back into school with very positive comments.'
A REFLECTION ON A PREVIOUS 'EXPERIENCE EASTER'
During Lent (in the second half of the spring term) we decided to put on Experience Easter as a Team Project, and invited five of the Wythenshawe Primary Schools to come and take part.
