Why do Christians communicate the Gospel through the Arts?
Wintershall’s RE Enquiry ‘Why do Christians communicate the Gospel through the Arts?’ is an exciting exploration of the Christian tradition to tell the story of the Gospels, using dramatic arts. The unit of work uses Wintershall productions as a case study for pupils to investigate, encouraging them to enquire and reflect on why and how bible drama is used.
The unit supports specific KS1 and KS2 Core learning outcomes within Understanding Christianity. It serves as an additional unit to extend learning around the Gospel concept and is structured around the core elements: ‘Making sense of the text, Understanding the impact and Making connections‘.
It is designed to be used flexibly either as a whole unit of work or as a series of themed learning activities as an option for ‘Digging Deeper’ within the UC Gospel units.
