Today was Palm Sunday

This morning we were treated to a puppet play, starring Braaaayden the donkey. He told us what happened on Palm Sunday - Jesus's triumphant procession into Jerusalem. All the people waved palm branches and shouted "Hosanna!" - basically saying "Jesus is Great! Jesus is Number One!" 

We had a VERY BUSY time out the back, making wonderfully MESSY art! We had 18 children, so were extremely glad of our wonderful young adult helpers.

We made 'Hosanna posters', some using collage, cutting handprints from green card to represent the palm branches. 

Some of us made art with our feet! Philomena painted our feet grey, and we stamped a painty footprint which we turned into a donkey's face. We made green palm leaves using our handprints. They looked AMAZING!

The paintings are drying now, but when they are ready we will hang them in the Chapel Gallery and you can come and check them out. In the meantime, you might enjoy these photos...
