Bible Society's programme of sharing Bible stories in primary school assemblies.
Open the Book is an exciting programme that offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories, from a team of storytellers from local churches. The stories are presented in a fun and interactive way that both children and teachers love. Each presentation takes 10–15 minutes and can be incorporated into a school assembly, or can stand alone.
This video shows what an Open the Book school assembly looks like in a Catholic Primary School. It was filmed as part of an Open the Book pilot in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. As you’ll see, it was a huge success!
Martha Flavell is our Open the Book contact person for the Catholic Church. If you are are interested in putting a team together in your church or if you are a teacher and would like to find out more, then please contact Martha by email.
