and your church
Equipping you and your church to build links with local primary schools
In 2007, Scripture Union celebrated 60 years of working in schools offering support in the classroom, assemblies and out-of-school activities and most importantly working with churches like yours to equip you to build links with local primary schools
It’s Your Move!... has already helped over a million children make their move to secondary school with confidence and helped many churches to start or continue a relationship that might include providing assemblies, input for RE lessons, after-school clubs, visits to their church building and more Scripture Union has equipped churches to build links with local schools with It’s Your Move!
Build your relationship with your local primary school and... Give children a positive experience of handling the Bible for themselves Equip teachers to teach the Christian element of their RE syllabus (KS2) As with It’s Your Move!, Into the Bible is a tool for churches to use
Giving children in the classroom a positive experience of handling parts of the Bible for themselves: 101 Bible extracts from the Bible story using the Contemporary English Version profiles of Bible characters fun cartoons
Providing teachers (often non-RE specialists) with the tools they need to teach the Christian element of their RE syllabus – helping them handle the Bible with integrity: 24 easy-to-use lesson outlines 101 Bible extracts for use on whiteboards downloadable activity sheets and more
The opportunity Make a gift to your local school Pray for your local school and the Into the Bible vision
“ Schools really welcome gifts like Into the Bible because RE budgets are so tight. It is a quality programme that will enhance the delivery of teaching and learning in RE. It’s been road-tested too so that it works for the non- specialist teacher! Into the Bible will be as effective in the contribution to the RE curriculum as It’s Your Move! has been in helping children make the transition from primary to secondary school. ” Wayne Dixon Scripture Union schools worker
“ Into the Bible is a unique and very valuable resource that is sure to make the Bible come alive, with guidance and clear help for teachers and schools. It will help churches to develop their work with schools, and, along with It's Your Move!, can provide schools with high quality resources. I haven’t seen anything quite like this before – an excellent idea! ” Nick Harding Children’s officer, Diocese of Southwell
“ It is a shame that children at school, learning about what Christians believe, rarely study the Bible for themselves. Into the Bible can change that! And so many head teachers, managing tight budgets, would welcome the practical support of churches offering them this resource. This is a great opportunity for churches to work with their local schools.” Penny Boshoff church children’s worker
