The children loved this. It was a speaking and listening activity using the David and Goliath bible story. Children loved it. I even had my partner record a message from David and Goliath...as seen in the lesson plan.\n\nHope its of some use.\n\nIt was for an observation and I did very well.
Written for Year 2 as part of our unit of work on Jewish stories and leaders, easily adaptable upwards. This session explores King David, starting with the story of David and Goliath, then looking at what happened during his life afterwards. We look at the Jesse Tree and a child friendly version of Psalm 8. We finish with what David taught Jews about God and what we think about God ourselves while listening to Psalm 8 in Hebrew. You will need to read the story of David and Goliath, I use the Lion Storyteller Bible but another children's version will also be fine.
