Children from nine schools in Hunstanton and the surrounding area visited the multi-media experience designed for youngsters at upper Key Stage 2 at the Way Christian Fellowship in the town this week.
The exhibition encourages youngsters to question, challenge and form their own opinions on the story of Jesus and uses interactive tablets, graphic panels, quizzes, films, songs and a discussion café that complements the guidelines for Religious Education in the United Kingdom. Life Exhibition national co-ordinator Kevin Baldwin said: “The exhibition consists of series of pods that the children visit in groups of up to 10 and they focus on the historical background, what Jesus said and did using a mixture of old and new technologies.
“A film covering the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus is shown in the last pod and a discussion and voting café follows where every child gets an electronic voting keypad to register their opinion on a number of questions.”
Visiting with his Year 6 class from Hunstanton Primary School, Dean Todd said: “It has been very interesting and when we are back at school we will be having follow up sessions in our RE lessons.” MLNF16EB01102
