Today we had a lovely Easter assembly lead by Claire, our local vicar.
We heard about the Easter story in the Bible and we found out what the Easter symbols represent.
- Easter Eggs & Baby Chicks - Eggs and chicks symbolize new life.
- Easter Lilies - The white blossoms symbolize the purity of Jesus. Lilies, emerging from the earth in the spring, also symbolize new life and the resurrection of Christ.
- Hot Cross Buns - Hot cross buns have a cross of icing on the top to remind people of Christ.
- Palm Branches - Represents when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday and people waved palm branches, welcoming him.
- The Cross - Symbolizes Jesus’ victory over death.
