Zacchaeus Role Play
Our current topic in RE is Prayers, Saints and Feasts. One of the key pieces of scripture that Year 3 are learning about is the story of Zacchaeus the Tax Collector. The children listened to the reading from the Bible and also watched an animation, which brought the story and its message to life. Following this, the children took on the role of the characters and acted out the story. The children discussed how Zacchaeus changed as a person and thought of adjectives to describe his personality before and after Jesus had visited him. We will use our knowledge of the story to form a basis for a discussion on forgiveness, and how we can learn from the example of Zacchaeus.
