If you had a thousand fingers what would you do?

Earlier this week Mary and Debs went to an Oldham Primary school to lead two Diary of a Disciple workshops with the Year 3 and Year 4 children.

Before the session, Mary asked the children to put a circle around the smiley face which best suited their answers to the following questions, How much do you feel you know about the Bible?, How relevant do you think the Bible is to people today? and How interesting is the Bible in your opinion?

At the end of the session she asked the same questions again.

Many children who had put a 1, ie. not knowing much about the Bible, then put 4 or 5 at the end of the session and lots of children who had put 1's or 2's for the question How interesting is the Bible? put 4's and lots of 5's at the end.

But the best response by far was when Mary asked the children to put their thumbs up if they had enjoyed the session and one little girl said, "If I had a thousand fingers I would put them all up!!!"

A very rewarding morning indeed!!
