Intended for Primary School key stages 1 and 2, the ‘Lift the Lid’ Christmas Experiences is a dramatised retelling of the biblical account of Christmas; suitable for pupils of all faiths. The children will learn what happened all those years ago, in an interactive and thought-provoking way.
Teachers and pupils join a guide who starts the Experience by travelling back in time. The pupils will meet actors who bring the story to life. Throughout the Experience the pupils are taken on a multi-sensory journey of discovery; time travelling at the end of the experience back to present day.
The Christmas Experiences also include a time for a craft activity specifically related to the Experience. Helpers ensure that the pupils 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.
