Hatching Hope: ‘A Crackin’ Great Easter’ – Full Show!

The Safe Space Collective Worship Assemblies Team from SASWT bring you full 40 minutes of end of term fun with our Easter extravaganza – Hatching Hope!
This production is the combined version of our 2021 two-part double-whammy of Easter collective worship assembly videos for primary schools to view in their class bubbles. We bring back some of the crazy fun and laughter from our infamous Christmas production – “A Very Merry Laughs-a-Plenty 2020 Christmas”, along with exploring what the Christian festival of Easter is all about, in an engaging video full of laughs, quizzes, animation, pop punk, rap and a giant Easter Egg that burst open to bring us challenges!
In Part 1, we cover Good Friday and the passion of Jesus on the day of crucifixion. Leading us to look at what it means to consider ourselves and others around us to be of great value, and show that in our actions. In Part 2, we cover the resurrection and how the impact of this Christian belief is still seen today, especially when it comes to our final challenge for everyone to bring some hope to those around us – hope for new and renewed life after everything these last 12 months.
Teachers may want to watch Part 1 and 2 as separate collective worship videos. If so, these links provide you with that ability:
Safe Space is a project of Southport & Area Schools Worker Trust, creating a safe space to explore the big issues of life and faith in local schools.

Learning Objectives:

  • To widen understanding of the Christian faith, how the Christian calendar relates to Biblical events, the core belief of a relationship with God, and hope in the resurrection.
  • To implement widened understanding through reflecting on the need for hope in society after troubled times.
  • To see an impact in how children extend the gift of friendship to others around them, reminding others of their love and worth, and carry out practical ways to bring hope to others.
