Christmas is coming up super quickly and I am sure there are many Catholic drama teachers, REC's and liturgy coordinators starting to plan their Christmas celebrations. I know how challenging it can be to try and think of a new way to tell the Christmas story each and every year, (I mean we all know how it turns out right?), and so as my Christmas gift to you I am sharing The Littlest Angel. This short dramatisation has been written to celebrate not only Christmas, but also the Jubilee Year of Mercy. I hope some of you are able to use it and I would love some feedback if you do. Happy christmas preparations!
Today I had the absolute pleasure of teaching a joyful group of young people how to breath life into the word of God. Students at the BBYM Conference learnt how to use the liturgical drama toolbox to create engaging and moving performances. Below are my notes from the conference. I hope they are useful to those of you working in Catholic schools, particularly primary school teachers, RE teachers and drama teachers... or any one else that can find them of use!
A huge thank you to Ms Susie Edmonds for teaching me most of what I know about this topic.
