Hi everyone. Happy Easter! I hope you are enjoying the Easter season and the school holidays. Take a look at the video below for an introduction to our character this week – a lady from the Bible who features in the Easter story.
Then watch this to hear the story starting from when Jesus was crucified. See what happens to give us a reason to celebrate today!
Take a look at this.
This great photo is of Alana who saw a lamb being born! The lamb is now named after her.
Things to do
I sent you all an email with an Easter tomb craft, featuring Mary Magdalene and Jesus. Ask your parents, if you haven’t already seen it! And if you are reading this after Easter, get in touch with us if you’d like that.
You can make Easter lamb bunting like the photo at the top of the page. Print out the template I have drawn with as many lambs as you like. Cut them out and thread on some ribbon. You can write the words on also.
Each person playing needs all the pieces to make one lamb. Each person takes a turn throwing a die. You take a part of the sheep as shown by the number you have thrown. For example, if you throw a 2 you can have the sheep’s body. If you throw a 6 add the tail. But if you throw another 2 or 6, you get nothing. The first person to make their whole lamb wins!
Don’t forget if you go for a walk over the Easter holidays to see if you can spot any lambs. They are such fun to watch when they jump around.

Thank you Jesus for dying for us and forgiving us for the things we do wrong. Thank you that we can follow you as Mary did. Amen.
