Open the Book (OtB) is Bible storytelling in Primary Schools using drama, props and costumes to bring the stories to life.
Stories are told by people in the local community who volunteer from local churches to be part of OtB.Now available as digital
recordings for collective worship in classrooms this autumn.
This programme is about storytelling, not preaching or evangelising, so children of all faiths – and those with none –
can watch and interact with the stories in their own way. The stories also feature important values like love,friendship, justice, and trust.
OtB is a valuable resource forming part of a schools collective worship programme. Teachers can link the Bible stories through to Religious Education lessons.
• OtB contributes to children’s religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
• OtB stories fulfil the legal requirement to be educational, inclusive and spiritual in a multifaith setting.
• OtB is being used successfullyin schools with wide ethnic and religious backgrounds.
Whatever their background, children and teachers find it educational and fun.
• OtB has been favourably received by OFSTED, ESTYN and SIAMS and helps primary schoolsin meeting their statutory
collective worship obligations under the 1998 Schools Standards & Framework Act.
