Exemplar narrative 1:

Taylor High cluster working group

Planned activities:

A role play drama involving a place a race in the playground where one child falls and is hurt.  Pause the role play and ask the children ‘what would you do?’

Pose the dilemma - do you stop and help? Why? Why not?

Read the story of The Good Samaritan.  Discuss who had a choice in the story and what choices did they make.  Link back to the original choices from the role play. 
(Editor note: good animation of the Good Samaritan parable athttp://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/the-good-samaritan/4445.html, and a funny puppet theatre retelling of the Good Samaritan at http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/the-good-samaritan/4445.html)

Closing thought – we are free to choose, this is a gift from God because He loves us.

-          Brainstorm who helps us to make good choices (e.g. Parents, teachers).  Lead on to the Forth Commandment: Honour your father and thy mother.  Discuss examples of how parents guide us and how this is for our own good.

Closing thought – we should be thankful to God for our parents.  

-          A role play drama as above, this time involving an incident of theft.  Lead on to Seventh Commandment:  You shall not steal.  Discuss respect for people and property whether you know them or not.  

Closing thought – reflection asking God to guide us.
