Primary children talk Jesus

Children from Years 1 & 2 at Saint John’s CofE (Aided) Primary school found themselves the stars of the show last week as they featured in a short film called Children Talking Jesus.

It all began some months ago, with one child asking Revd. David, chair of governors at the school and Vicar of the parish of Shildon, whether God was a boy or a girl?

The children then proceeded to explore various questions with the help of ‘Crispy Crow’ a puppet that sat with Revd. David.

They wondered about what God eats with one girl suggesting starlight and a boy chipping in with turkey dinosaurs.

When thinking about Christmas and baby Jesus they thought about the story and just who Jesus was. ‘The Son of God’ came a whisper, and he had ‘Frankenstein’ as a present added another little voice.

Commenting on heaven the children thought about it as a ‘special place for dead people’ whilst God’s home was ‘in space.’

“Children are instinctively spiritual” explained Revd. David. “They understand that there is much about the world that is a mystery and are happy to explore what that means.”

The film was made by Aegies Communication and can be viewed on the school’s website or on YouTube.
