Harvest Photobook Interactive
This is an electronic book to support teachers in delivering the QCA RE Unit on Harvest. A selection of photographs are used to introduce the idea of harvest words and a Harvest Festival. Audio support is given and the book provides a simple navigation system that the pupils will normally be able to use by themselves.
Celebrating Christmas Video
This clip adds to the cultural celebrations of Christmas which are typical in Britain, some consideration of the special aspects of the festival for Christians. Advent, a four week countdown with advent wreath and 5 candles, symbolises Jesus as the light of the world. Nathan uses an Advent Calendar that is about remembering Jesus, not just scoffing chocolate every day! We see a Nativity play at a primary school, where children take the parts of characters in the story to make Christmas story feel real: they sing ‘Our light has come! The Son is born today.’ The special Christian Christmas celebrations include ‘Midnight Mass’ or a communion service very late on Christmas Eve.
