Barnabas RE Days
The Barnabas RE Day Approach
We value the spiritual life of children, so we embrace an open-ended and exploratory approach when exploring Christian values and Bible stories through the creative arts. No assumptions are made about prior knowledge or expectations concerning personal belief; instead, children are encouraged to use the imagination to immerse themselves playfully in key faith stories to ask questions, suggest possible answers to dilemmas - and engage with Christian beliefs in a non-confrontational and frequently light-hearted way that supports RE, PSE and SMSC provision. Appropriate differentiation is made in style and content to allow for pupil age and ability, and support materials are also provided.
Comments from recent Barnabas RE Days:
The sessions use different creative arts, according to the strengths of the Barnabas in Schools' team member undertaking your booking, and include storytelling, music, mime or drama. The material is based on Bible stories, contemporary life illustrations and shared experience.
A half-day's programme is available for small schools - find out more.
