A collection of stories from, and inspired by, the Old and New Testament.
Hear the ground rumble as Goliath walks into battle - he's a giant of a man!
Noah's family takes some persuading to get into the great boat he's made - will they believe him when he says a great flood is on its way? You'll need to hang on while the ark sways backwards and forwards and up and down.
All is well for Adam and Eve in the Paradise Garden until a creature tempts them.
The story of St Peter starts with a fisherman called Simon, who finds Jesus in his boat. Gather round the Sea of Galilee to hear his amazing story and learn why he was called The Rock.
Abraham and Sarah live by themselves in the desert; all they ever wanted was a child, but now it's too late. Some strangers who stay for a meal seem to think it isn't.
You might also hear about Daniel's adventures; Moses and Joseph (and those dreams of his).
Bible Tales are told with lots of audience participation to really engage pupils in the stories.
"A huge favourite of Year 2's was Tillytoo Tales, which involved the whole class in the retelling of the story of St Peter and the Fishermen. The children held out a sheet of blue silk and shook it to look like the surface of the sea and joined in with actions and rhymes." Y2 teacher, Devon (Buckfast Abbey storytelling festival)
