Godly Play Overview
Spring Term 2018
Godly Play is a child centred, “wondering” approach to RE teaching. It encourages, challenges and nourishes their spiritual quest as well as enriching their biblical knowledge. Stories are shared using plain wooden figures and simple scripts, the children are then given the opportunity to question and respond through discussion, play and art.
The children at HWCE School have one session of Godly Play each term. Here is a short description of the stories covered by the children in their Godly Play sessions this term.
Noah’s Ark (Early Years)
The story of Noah and the Ark presented simply, focusing on God’s relationship with Noah.
The Twelve Apostles
Christ’s relationship with the twelve Apostles, both as disciples and friends, explored through Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” painting. We will be focusing on the personal qualities of the Twelve, and what being a disciple of Jesus means, both then and now. We will also be discussing what the Apostles did during Christ’s ministry, and after his death and resurrection.
