Welcome back! – We are now in Eastertide and that means it’s time to party! We celebrate the season of Easter by using a word we don’t use during Lent – Alleluia. The word simply means “Praise the Lord” and it’s a reminder that at this time of year we should be rejoicing and celebrating that Jesus is risen.
Think this week about what makes you want to celebrate and think about how you can show the world the joy of the resurrection.
It’s time for our “Word of the Week” watch the video above and check out for the notices at the bottom of the screen – don’t forget to leave your comments below! – You may notice that this week’s work of the week is particularly joyful – That’s because it’s EASTER!
In your forms – think about what makes you joyful and celebrate it with your class with a round of applause!
We’re moving on to a new topic in our PSHCE this half term – This is a chance to explore what it means to do the right thing and the consequences when we don’t. It’s an opportunity to explore the legal system and how we make decisions as part of a democracy. An opportunity to explore what it means to be fair and how to affect situations where this is not the case.

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.
This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.
John 20: 8
Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in; he saw and believed.
What does Jesus’ resurrection mean to you? How would you have reacted and behaved if you had gone to visit the tomb that day and had found it empty?
Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.
