Godly Play at St Matthew’s Church of England Primary

st matts

Children throughout the school show high levels of engagement during “Godly play” which is led by Claire Wells, our Godly Play  lead teacher. These sessions provide opportunities for spiritual reflection in a calm and nurturing environment. Below are some examples of the wonderful learning which the children have been involved in. All of these sessions are very creative and “hands on” giving the children a good opportunity to discuss their understanding of key messages from the Bible. The children are able to relate these to their own lives, for those children who follow different faiths, they are able to reflect on their own beliefs.

Children have been creating displays with Claire which focus on the Christian Calendar. There have been many thought provoking areas created, children have  been keen to record their ideas on the displays and often left prayers to share with others.
