Open The Book

The Open The Book team delivered the first assembly at Hallow Primary School on Monday 30 September where they presented the story of Creation: ’In the Beginning’. We are being given a wonderful opportunity through OTB to share Bible stories with children who would not otherwise hear them. The staff and the children at the school really look forward to us going in. In response to ‘What did you like most about the story?’, one Year 6 boy’s hand shot up and he called out, ‘ALL OF IT!’. Mission accomplished!

Also, Karen Gorman, the team leader, has recently attended a  training evening run by the Diocese and they were stressing that the C of E’s equivalent to Ofsted i.e. SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) with be greatly enhanced for all schools using ‘Open the Book’ as it is widely respected.

If you would like to get involved, please speak to Karen. We are looking to recruit other team members and not just those who will go into school as Storytellers, but also people to make costumes and props etc. Its going to be great fun and we’d love to have you aboard!
