RE - The Good Samaritan

In RE we have been exploring the act of charity. We have read the Christian bible story ‘The Good Samaritan’ and created our own modern day version. We adapted a play script, appointed directors (who cast the roles) and then rehearsed. We ended the lesson with our final performances. This helped us to explore the scenario and the motives and actions of the people involved. We also enjoyed developing our performance skills.
