Open the Book

Open the Book is a series of Bible stories designed to help children to know and understand them.  They are presented as belief and not fact, and it is for the school staff to use them as a teaching aid.  Each session ends with a prayer for the children, which they can join as they wish, and a short summary by the teacher in charge.  Open the Book sessions are run by groups of volunteers, usually supplemented by children in supporting roles.  The sessions are much enjoyed by the children, both in St Minver Primary School on Monday mornings, and at St.Kew Primary School on Wednesday afternoons.

Anyone who wishes to join us would be most welcome.  All volunteers must be security checked, which will be arranged through the Diocesan Office.

School Study Days

School parties are invited to visit St Endellion for an Educational Study Day.

The children are introduced to the main features of the church and then they break into study groups.

Half of the class will look at the colours of the church year, the Vestments and the items used in the celebration of the Eucharist ‘play’ the organ ring the bells. The other half go into the Church Hall to paint or to do some 3D craft work which can be taken back to school. After a break at mid morning the groups swap so that everyone has a chance to do everything.

For schools who wish to stay for the afternoon there is a chance to do some creative writing. All leaders are teachers or members of the clergy.

These days are suitable mainly for Key Stage 2 pupils and are proving very popular.
