The Good Samaritan

This Good Samaritan learning resource can be used:

When you’re looking at parables within the RME curriculum. Children will discover more about Christian belief and values as they enjoy this story.
To gently challenge the children about their own personal values. Whatever our beliefs we can consider if we treat everybody the same and who we are willing to help? We can practically consider how we can be a ‘Good Samaritan’.
In a context on friendship or refugees. How do we treat people who are different from us?
Across the curriculum. The Good Samaritan is a great story to act out (everyone wants to be the bandits!) and provides wonderful opportunities for discussions around moral dilemmas.

Our introduction will help you understand the resources and plan your sessions. It’s also full of ideas to extend the learning across the curriculum. Download this here.

“The children were also encouraged to discuss their own thoughts and ideas about God, Heaven, helping others and being a good friend. The children were actively engaged throughout the sessions and enjoyed using all the lovely resources.”
