The Big Frieze

As part of our RE Curriculum, we follow the Understanding Christianity scheme of work. Within this, we look at 'The Big Frieze'. 

The Big Frieze is designed to give teachers the opportunity to make pupils aware of the wider context of each concept, unit and text studied in the Understanding Christianity materials. Reminding pupils regularly of where a particular text occurs within the ‘big story’, by pointing it out on the Frieze, helps to build up a coherent understanding of the core concepts and the relationship between them.

The artwork illustrates these concepts, from Creation to Kingdom of God, presenting a Christian view of the Bible as more than a collection of different texts – one which has an overarching coherence and story.

The children wanted to create their own version of the Big Frieze and so we got in touch with local artist, Gillian Parish, to see what we could do. She came in and worked with the children across the school in creating their own version of the Big Frieze. The results are in pictures below.
