Some suggestions for using the Advent cards
The cards can be:
- viewed on screen
- cut up as playing card size for individual use
- enlarged and pinned on a board
They could be used:
- as a daily assembly focus
- as a pause for quiet reflection during a busy day in the classroom
- at the end of the day as a thought to take home for the evening
- as a means of helping pupils to find their way around the Bible
- as a time line about the history of God’s plan for us, God’s people, from creation to the birth of Christ
- as an opportunity to look in more depth at the role of some of the key characters in the Bible
- to help in the understanding of Advent as the time of waiting for the birth of the expected Messiah
- for recording the short Bible text in work books, letting them show God’s plan unfolding through different people over time
- for pupils to suggest a small image to illustrate each card or text
