Year 2 had Godly Play over in the Church last week. They heard the story about the Good Shepherd, comparing the good shepherd to an ordinary one. They answered questions about the story and related the story to themselves. The children enjoyed making pompoms for a sheep, painting pictures of the story, creating some of the characters with play dough and they could retell the story using the story sack.
