This is the first day of two in which we are training Sunday School teachers. Our aim is to equip them to use a smimilar approach as we use in ‘Open the Book’ to help children know and understand stories from the Bible. It involves acting out the stories. We wrote the materials ourselves and provided some very simple ‘props’, such as headdresses and tabards. After we had modelled two stories for them, they very quickly got the idea. There are 20 of them, divided into 3 groups. Each group took on the task of acting a story themselves with great enthusiasm and treated us to some accurate but entertaining ‘productions’! A great first day. Tomorrow, they write their own story and act it out.
