The learning schedule for RE at St Peter’s follows the Liturgical Calendar as closely as possible, meaning that before the Easter holiday the focus was squarely on the Lenten journey and the events of Holy Week. This also means that the Easter season is taken up with the study unit of Easter, even though we may be thinking of Easter Sunday as fading into the background as summer approaches. This week, therefore, Year 5 pupils have had a strong learning focus on the symbolism of items found within the Easter Triduum. This ranges from the empty tabernacle and the covered statues to Easter Vigil and the Paschal candle.
