Why do Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good Friday'?
Within this unit, pupils will learn about how the Christian Salvation story fits into the big story of the Bible. They will find out about the main events of holy week and offer suggestions about how people at the time might have felt and responded to these key events. Pupils will study texts from the Bible that retell the key events of holy week and suggest what these mean for Christians today. Later in the unit, pupils will find out about how Christians today remember, celebrate and respond to the events of holy week and Easter. They will begin to make links between some of these events and life in the world today, suggesting why some Christians live their lives in the way that they do.
