We were visited by Reverend Jules and her 'Open the Book' team to share the story of Zacchaeus from the Bible. Children from Year 6 helped share the retelling and we all reflected on the importance of being kind and caring like Jesus was, even when others may not behave that way to us.

When we opened the book again this week Year 1(dressed as sheep) helped Reverend Jules and her team to bring the parable of The Lost Sheep to life. The children discussed the moral of the story. Why would a shepherd leave his ninety-nine sheep and search for the lost one until he found it? Why, when he found the sheep, would put it on his shoulders with joy, take it home, and tell his friends and neighbours to rejoice with him, because the lost sheep had been found? Jesus, as the 'Good Shepherd' values each one of us we are told. When we wander from the path he would search, find us and return us to the path.

The children love learning about stories from the Bible in this way. We can't wait to discover which story we will share next.
