This year we delivered Christmas Lessons to 71 classes of Year 7 and 8 students across the 8 schools we work in. Through a mixture of games and activities; including Playdough Pictionary, bridge building, the price is right game and a clip from Lord of the Rings, we explore the Christmas story with students, and why for Christians, Jesus is the best ever present. In particular we focussed on the significance of the Wise Men’s gifts, what they symbolise about Jesus, and how for Christians this helps us understand the importance of who Jesus is and what he has done.
Feedback from students and staff was overwhelmingly positive. We had a deluge of positive comments including “The lesson was really fun and enjoyable and brightened up my Wednesday,” and “I think the ways that the things in the lesson were said gave me a good understanding of things I struggled with”. 88%of students enjoyed the lesson whilst 87% said that their understanding of the topic had increased.
It was fantastic to see students engage with and enjoy the lesson so much, as well as to see them grow in their understanding of the topic, and we look forward to more of the same as we deliver Easter lessons across our schools.
