Passover Meal…March 29th…Y6

Passover Meal…March 29th…Y6

The focus of our R.E. work in Y6 is the Passover Meal, and, in particular, the Passover Meal that has become known as The Last Supper.  We have explored the historical roots of this meal, from Moses and the Exodus story in the Old Testament, to the Gospel accounts of Jesus sharing this last meal with his friends.  It is a meal rich in symbolism.  Y6 and invited family members enjoyed a respectful enactment of this key interaction between the two major faiths: Judaism and Christianity.
