EYFS – Why do Christians put a cross in an Easter Garden?

Give the children simple images from the Easter story to order and retell the story (see picture below). Can they either match the images with key words or write simple sentences underneath describing what is happening.  Could they paint their own story stones or pictures?





Year 1 and 2 – Why does Easter matter to Christians? – Beginners Bible Easter Story Religions of the world – Easter story


  • I wonder if you can use this images to help you remember and retell the Easter story? What does each picture represent?
  • I wonder which part of the story you think is the most important?
  • I wonder why there is a crown in the last picture?




Year 3 and 4 – Why do Christians call the day Jesus died good? My life, my religion – Easter The Easter story.


Imagine you have been asked to create a display for your local church either to go in a window that can be seen from outside the church, or another form of presentation that can go on the church website, showing the importance of either Palm Sunday, Good Friday or Easter Sunday. (It could be a power point, poster or piece of artwork).

It needs to include a suitable cross with an explanation about what this reminds Christians of, and a creative recount of the key part of the Easter story linked to your display. 

You might title each of the displays:

Why is Palm Sunday so important to Christians?

Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday?

What do Christians believe happened on Easter Sunday?


These video clips might help remind you of the story and why Christians celebrate Easter each year. My life, my religion – Easter The Easter story.

Year 5 – What did Jesus do to save human beings?

Year 6 – What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?


The command to ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself’ will involve some sacrifice.

What does it mean to sacrifice something? (the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone.)

The Bible tells Christians that Jesus sacrificed himself for the sins of the world, so they could be forgiven.

What impact do you think this sacrifice have on the lives of Christians?  


Create a poster for the school, local community or the world to explain how far the idea of sacrifice is good and necessary for making the world a better place. Try to make links with Christian ideas and Jesus’ teachings. It is perfectly fine to say that sacrifice is not good, but you must offer good reasons and alternatives that will make the world a better place!

 What sacrifices might people be making at the moment? How could you sacrifice something to help someone else?
