Christmas RE lesson KS1 - Angel Gabriel Visits Mary

This resource is a plan for a lesson about the Annunciation, when Gabriel visits Mary to tell her she will give birth to the baby Jesus. It is suitable for using with Key Stage 1.

The 5 page pdf lesson plan includes a starter, two drama activities, a short written activity and a plenary whole class activity. There is a 22 slide animated PowerPoint presentation of the story of the Annunciation to use. This is not editable. (Click ‘Read Only’ to open.) There is also a colour and black & white pdf version of the template for the written activity.

A fun, interactive lesson with a focus on trust, which could be used individually or at the start of a Christmas RE unit.

I used this lesson with my Year 1 class and they really enjoyed it!

You can also buy the PowerPoint separately:
