Intended for key stages 1 and 2, the ‘Lift the Lid’ Christmas and Easter Experiences are dramatised retellings of the biblical accounts of Christmas and Easter; suitable for pupils of all faiths. The children will learn what happened all those years ago, in an interactive and thought-provoking way.
The children and teachers join a guide who starts the Experience by travelling back in time. The children
meet actors who bring the story to life. Throughout the Experience the children are taken on a multi-sensory journey of discovery; time travelling at the end of the experience back to present day
The Christmas and Easter Experiences also include a time for a craft activity specifically related to the Experience. Helpers ensure that the children have all the help they need for the craft activity. This also means that teachers can put their feet up and enjoy a well deserved cup of tea or coffee. Suitable drinks and snacks are made available both for children and teachers.
