As part of their learning about Palm Sunday, Tulips, Snowdrops and Bluebells imagined themselves as different members of the crowd on that day.
Some people were zealots – wishing to wage war on the Romans; some acted as traders – sick of paying taxes to the Romans! Others imagined themselves as pharisees – unhappy with the popularity of Jesus.
The children got into groups and created their own chants. These chants were enhanced with the beat of percussive instruments. The result was a cacophony of sound, as everyone called pout their message.
