Part 2:
- build a cross - children can attach a speech bubble/cloud to show how they show love/know Jesus loves them
- read, share and discuss children's bible story

Assessment ideas:
 Colour in vestments - match to time of the Church year.  
            Paired learning - sequence of Easter story - making a folded card.  
            Write/draw family celebration.
Say:    Discuss questions and video interview with parish priest.  
            Listen to appropriate bible story and discuss.  
            Circle time discussion of family celebrations.
Make:  Collage of how children show love/know Jesus - a patchwork of their speech bubbles
            Easter cards
            Paint eggs and egg rolling - being able to explain the origin of this tradition
Do:      Independently dress class altar - white
            Collaborative learing - compile a short Easter dramach and school.
