Preparing for SIAMS, got to go through all the planning/paper work and make it all sparkly new and coordinated and I am looking for a catchy title for the unit on the bible that I will be teaching next term. Don't know what will be in it either, but that is another panic peaceful holiday day spent planning. Any ideas? Last term's topic on How Christians Worship was entitled 'Praise Him With Cymbals' (quote from the bible)
Yes, the quotation marks would do it ... Blood Sodom and Gomorrah would definitely appeal to year 5 (but maybe not to the SIAMS inspector?) ... in fact I like all of them. I think I will go with Meditrina's suggestion ... maybe with InMySpareTime's idea on the back cover.
Now ::panic rising:: has anyone got any really fantastic, totally spiritual and memorable ways to start the topic and/or any ideas to include?
The thought of inspectors watching has, of course, completely paralysed my brain.
I had thought of giving small groups of children different stories to read and report back on, maybe with a small 'book report' giving the outline of the story, suggesting the genre etc and then we will discover they all come from the bible. I am collecting 66 cereal boxes and want to actually physically put different stories etc into them to reinforce the concept of a collection of books ... I need to think about how Christians use the bible ...
