A great add-on craft would be to make the chariot!

Key Stage 1 RE

Friday 25 January 2019

RE ‘syllabuses’ vary enormously from one education authority to the next but there are some shared key areas and attainment targets.

What is special to me, my family, my community and others (stories, celebrations, values, places) are themes that have meaning for most children.

Bible storytelling with Storystack characters can be used to start a discussion about old and new testament characters (e.g. Moses, Abraham, Esther) as well as Jesus and his disciples, about festivals, celebrations and rites of passage (e.g. Passover, Christmas, Easter, baptism) and about values (e.g. the good Samaritan, Zaccheus).

Interactive storytelling – the stories can be varied, with the children taking responsibility for a character’s movements or speech or with whole group involvement in response to certain planned cues.

Storytelling can be followed by re-telling by the children in their own play time to encourage skills of listening, memory, sequencing, group play and communication.

Questioning can be encouraged after the telling of a story - suggesting that the children think of a question that they would like to ask one of the characters.

Craft can be based on a story – either making some scenery to enhance the storytelling or making a ‘Storystack’ figure of themselves from card and being in the crowd, involved in the story that way.
