Summary
  • When it comes to teaching parables or other faith stories with a moral message, non-specialist teachers are sometimes faced with a dilemma as to how much they can adapt the story for their audience, without being disrespectful, and how best to draw out the key messages. One way round this problem is to invite a faith visitor in to tell the parable, and this is what happens at Fairlop Primary School in Essex. In this programme Christian worker Neil Poole works alongside reception teacher Jo Bailey to introduce her reception class to the parable of The Good Samaritan. Neil chooses quite a traditional version of the story, simplifying it for his young audience while keeping in key vocabulary. The masterstroke is engaging the pupils through participation, and Neil brings some costumes to help the actors feel the part. The dramatisation not only keeps the class focused but also helps them to recall the story in detail which is seen during a discussion exercise later in the programme
  • This classroom resource presents two colourful stories from different faiths with themes of universal values at the heart. Firstly, the Buddhist tale of The Brave Parrot features an act of great courage and selflessness. The second piece, Ganesh and the Cat , is a Hindu story which highlights the importance of respect for all living things. The tales are narrated through dramatic and stylised performances. With personal introductions from representatives of each faith, children are invited to explore the qualities and values examined in each piece. The stories can be viewed and discussed separately or watched one after the other as part of KS1 RE lessons on values. Their message may be considered alongside moral tales from different religions, for example Christian parables, as a way of reinforcing the universality of certain values, as well as features unique to different religions (e.g. the names of gods and key figures)
