Open the Book

29th January 2020

The children always enjoy watching the Open the Book Team bringing to life the bible stories. It is also good to see the children participating in the story telling. We are grateful that members of the Holy Spirit Church give their time to come into school to perform for us.
This week, we learnt about a bible story from Luke 2:41-52, which tells of the time when Jesus, as a young boy, stayed behind in Jerusalem after the Passover festival, without telling his parents.  When they realised that he was missing on the way home, they returned to Jerusalem in a panic, only to find him in a temple deep in discussion with the priests there.  Their anxiety was met with his confusion: as far as he was concerned, it was obvious that he would be in his 'Father's house'.
