Year 8 have been consolidating their learning about Holy Week by creating their own Holy Week board games, with guidance from Mr Kelly. There have been some interesting games created – eggs and crosses by Maisie, Lilly and Chloe which recalled the events of Holy Week and was played like snakes and ladders.
Wesley, Mollie and Harriet came up with the original name of Holy Week but their game was the most popular among their peers.
Chloe, Phoebe and Megan came up with the most detailed game called Sacrifice which recalled many of the events of the Easter Triduum.
Tom, Finn and Aadil developed a game based on question and answering about the events of Holy Week and Tyler, Leighton and Louie created another game that was played like snakes and ladders.
Students created all their own games, tested and developed them before allowing their peers to try them out and get feedback on how the games were for entertainment and knowledge about Holy Week. This was a fun way to build on what they had learned about Holy Week and check on their own learning and understanding.
