April 2015 to February 2016
Cycle B of the primary schools’ programme is currently touring through to February 2016.
The following plays, workshops and resources are included in this programme:
Reception, Year 1 and 2
Ginny has had enough of people telling her what to do. She never gets to have the things that she wants. She is sick of rules. So much so that she wants to live in a world with no rules—a world of freedom! However, when her wish is suddenly granted, Ginny starts to realise that “freedom” is not all that she hoped it would be and, before long, chaos ensues.
FREEDOM FIGHTER helps children to understand the importance of rules and to see that true “freedom” comes when you are not bound by urges and desires.
Master and Servant
Year 3 and 4
Anthony and Charlotte are brother and sister. At school, they are learning about what it means to be a servant and to serve each other. Through their own experience of being a ‘master’ and ‘servant’ to each other – both with upsetting consequences – they discover the deeper meaning of serving others. They hear a story about the ‘Servant King’ which helps them to better appreciate how to help and love others
MASTER AND SERVANT helps children to find happiness by loving and serving others instead of using others for their own benefit.
Year 5 and 6
Arthur’s life is about to change and he will need to grow up fast as he is evacuated to the countryside at the beginning of World War II. Faced with leaving his mum in London and being in an unfamiliar place, what will Arthur learn about himself in this new situation? He meets Nate, the son of the farmer whose farm is now ‘home’ for Arthur – together they discover the importance of friendship, courage, determination and the cost of loving others?
CALLED UP helps children to cope with the impact of change, adjust to separation from family, embrace new friendships and discover God’s plan for their lives.
The quality and content of what you do is superb.”
