Stations of the Cross

This year on the last day of term before the Easter holidays Bentley CE  Primary School invites you to our retelling of the Stations of the Cross.  

The Stations of the Cross is a traditional way of telling Jesus’ story from being condemned to death and His journey while carrying the cross to His crucifixion and death. At Bentley we like to add an additional station which celebrates Jesus’ resurrection.  

Over the next week the classes will be learning about the 15 stations that make up the story and will produce artwork in response. Each class will create art for two stations and these will be set out in a trail for you to follow around the school grounds (weather permitting).  

We last did a retelling of the Stations of the Cross four years ago, and I know how proud the children were to show off their artwork and how much the parents who saw the trail enjoyed it.  

The trail will be open at the end of the school day on Thursday 1st April. Please collect your child as usual from the playground and then go around to the Year R gate (by the recreation ground) to start the trail. At the end of the trail you will leave by the staff car park gate. This will enable us to have a covid-safe one way system.
