R.E. – Easter workshop

On Monday 4th March, Year 5 completed an engaging Easter workshop with Rachel from NISCU and Reverend Richard. The children were greeted by a 'Crime scene' in the hall - police tape had cornered off Jesus' empty tomb. Their task for the workshop was to act as detectives and interview three eye witnesses, a Roman Guard, the disciple Peter and Mary Magdalene to discover what had happened. Recording down in their police evidence log the different eye witness accounts. The children enjoyed interviewing the different witnesses and using probing questions to gain all possible information they could from each one of them. Once they had completed their interviews, the children consider the evidence gathered and recorded their personal opinion about what had happened. The children were fully engaged throughout the session and relished in the opportunity to harness their detective skills to solve the mystery. Rachel and Reverend Richard were impressed with their excellent interviewing skills.
