Supports RE syllabus teaching about how, and why, Advent is important to Christians.
Full day: 4 classes. Half day: 2 classes.
Hear the story of how God prepared his people for the coming of His son. Starting with Adam and Eve and ending with Jesus, Tales from the Jesse Tree introduces pupils to the stories of key figures from the Old Testament and encourages them to reflect on the historical family tree of Jesus. As each tale unfolds the family of God in scripture comes vividly to life.
Jesse Trees carved in wood, stone and in stained glass were once found in many churches and cathedrals and served as the family tree of Jesus. These stories are a perfect way to help pupils understand the importance of Advent for Christians.
