In addition to the usual rooms you would find in any primary school we have a Godly Play Room.
Our Godly Play room is housed in one of the highest points in our school and has great views of the church next door and the surrounding area. Our room has a deep-pile carpet to make it more comfortable for children to sit on. Around the room are a number of resources that the Godly Play storyteller uses to tell a story.
Part of the room is not carpeted and this allows children to use creative materials to ‘wonder’ about the story.
We are delighted to show Godly Play practitioners our room and even see a session in action.What is Godly Play?
- a non-coercive way to encourage children to move into larger dimensions of belief and faith
- uses wondering questions and open-ended response time
- aims to develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites
- a way of preparing children to join in the worship and life of their faith community
