Intro..... The exhibition known as the “Life and Times of Christ” was put together by Christians at Walsall Independent Evangelical Church in the year 2000 and taken into schools from January 2001. To date over 100 schools in the West Midlands have received the exhibition, many on a recurring year by year basis. (See list on the left)

Details - The exhibition consists of five sections at which each Key Stage 2 Class spends an average of 10 minutes. At the end they complete a worksheet of 16 questions which is marked during time at the school and returned to them. As a parting gift they receive a gospel of Luke plus a take home worksheet in which there are quizzes and puzzles (answers being on the back page!)

The five exhibition sections are as follows:Artifacts

1.      Jewish Artefacts and model of first century Synagogue. Among the 12 artefacts many still used in Judaism today are explained to the children.

The next few sectors each consist of 6 boards onSect 1 staging. They are 900 cm x 600 cm with bold and bright visual aids.

2.    The first of three is illustrating the cultural background: Maps, model of a house, details of jobs, village life, and sights and sounds of Israel today are explained by a presenter.

3.    The second picks up on the Bible narrative of Jesus' birth; choosing of his disciples, and his early ministry around Galilee.Sect 3

4.    The next section reflects what Jesus taught; a selection of parables, Jesus’ “I am” saying and the events leading up to Good Friday.

5.    The fifth and final section deals with the elements of Easter Sunday and the start of the early church. The exhibition concludes with reference to ongoing work of 21st Century Christian organisations.

 Approach -The exhibition is taught factually and historically with the presenters using key phrases such as “this is what Chrisrtians believe”, -“this is what the Bible says”, - “and this is what Jesus said”. There is no application of the material.

Many of the Key features of the exhibition reflect themes from the Birmingham Agreed RE Syllabus for Key stages 1 and 2.

Age range - Primarily designed for Key Stage 2 classes years 3-6 for a duration of 75 minutes each.
Also adaptable for an edited version for years 1 and 2 lasting up to 25/30 minutes (with or without worksheets)

Setup requirements - Normally the set up would take place the evening before ready for an early start if (and it usually is) required. The Exhibition stands once assembled can be conveniently moved to the side should the hall been needed ffor another activity or to make space for lunch.

The exhibition is run by a team of presenters and in all but a few circumstances would be five people. Each presenter has an up to date enhanced CRB which the school can see on our arrival.

“Every child and staff member spoke highly of their experience. The resources and display you have are excellent quality.”

“A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by my group. They were kept interested and motivated the whole session and learnt a great deal.”

“Great exhibition, children thoroughly enjoyed it. It was pitched at the right level to allow the children to get the most out of it.”

An exciting change to R.E., which got all the children involved and everyone worked hard to learn something.”

“Both staff and pupils have commented on the high standard of your resources, your excellent presenter’s skills and knowledge of the Bible.”

“Staff and pupils alike thoroughly enjoyed their session and found the exhibition interesting, well organised and quite suitable for the pupils.”

“Pupils very much enjoyed working with the team, as no doubt you could tell from their enthusiasm and the fact they sat quietly and listened.”

“The children gained tremendously from the experience and I know that our Year 6 pupils were particularly impressed – because it fitted in so well with the R.E. work they are currently undertaking.”

Thank you so much for this morning it really did seem to go very well. Lots of people commented on how good it looked. Very much look forward to next term and we are planning of making a weeks focus around what you do.
