When author and high school teacher Walter Firth attempted to start a Christian after-school programme, he found that the traditional curriculum sources had not been meeting the demands of today’s society. By putting his teaching skills to good use, he began formulating a programme designed to engage with students’ emotional, moral, intellectual, social, and spiritual development.
The Little Oxen Programme Booklet presents a set of lessons designed for either after-school activities or Sunday school. They are designed to be fun and exciting whilst supporting and nurturing children in a safe and caring environment. Building on biblical stories and intended for a two-person teaching team, each lesson includes a range of activities, including arts, crafts, and drama. These work to engage students’ attention and convey important messages to young people.
Insightful and practical, this programme of biblical studies guides the development of children and youth in a way that current Christian material tends to miss.
