Getting 'Open the Book' into Norfolk schools

2011: Carolyn Cliff is a Lay Minister from St Nicholas Church, Great Yarmouth and she's heading up a team to get OPEN THE BOOK into local schools. Open The Book is a scheme to relay Bible stories to children, usually during assemblies.

OPEN THE BOOKOPEN THE BOOK offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible in an interactive and enjoyable way during assembly times. Teams of Christians from local churches tell the stories in a 10-15 minute presentation. This can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or stand alone
All the Year One stories are taken from The Lion Storyteller Bible written by Bob Hartman, and give an overview of the Bible from Creation to the Ascension. There are a further 2 years of themed material for those schools (and teams) who wish to continue. It is a mark of OPEN THE BOOK's popularity that most schools continue with the programme!

OPEN THE BOOK fulfils both OFSTED and SIAS (Church School Inspection) requirements for Collective Worship, and has been successfully used in a multi-faith context
