As part of our Easter celebrations this year, we spent an afternoon learning about Christian Orthodox Easter. In KS1 and KS2, the children learnt how symbols of Orthodox Easter such as Pascha baskets and pysanky eggs, express the joy of recreation and new life. The children had an opportunity to look at what a Pascha basket would contain. They also designed and painted their own pysanky eggs. A Russian Orthodox priest also came in to school to talk to the children about how Easter is celebrated in his church.
