Amazing R.E. LESSONS

Thumbs up

The Bible. What a book! The all-time best seller.

The stories are EPIC!

Our team of Presenters pass on these Bible stories in an engaging way, taking children back in time, helping them understand the individual stories - and also how the underlying narrative ties them all together as one incredible story!

OT MINI and NT MINI are educational programmes specifically designed to help 9-11 year olds uncover key features of both the Jewish and Christian faiths, explaining the grand narrative, festivals and celebrations.

Through a series of five 45-60 minute sessions we locate the major geographical movements of all the key characters, and make them memorable.

We connect well with audio, visual and kinaesthetic learners through storytelling, actions and drama.

OT MINI and NT MINI are fun and get children excited about the most amazing book of all time.

workmap resources

OT MINI and NT MINI have been developed for use exclusively in Primary Schools for 9-11 year olds.

Thanks to a bursary, funded by our supporters, the cost for many sets of these materials has already been pre-paid, allowing us to cover the £1 per child cost to schools for thousands of children each half-term.

Each Walk Through the Bible Presenter is a volunteer, so may appreciate any reimbursement available for travel expenses.
