  1. Hello Katrina
    It’s good to hear that the material has been useful for you. Sorry I’ve not got any information on the Northern Saints, and sorry that I am replying late to your comment but I’ve had a ‘big’ illness that I have come through. I am hoping to start writing new stuff again for the website soon.

  2. Stumbled across your site, it’s very informative and helpful for my KS2 class. Do you have any information on the Northern Saints?

  3. This stuff is spot on, as a home educator it is a real asset, especially as all the ideas and links are provided. I’ve struggled with subjects like this and as you can probably tell i’m chuffed to bits. Thank you. It is all the better that the resources are predominately Christian.

  4. Joanne
    I found the plans very useful because they were insyc with my year four class lessons this period, thanks a million.

  5. Thank you. Planning on using some of the ideas for our Jan/Feb Series- We Believe What? for our elementary kids.

  6. Off the top of my head – it’s a matter of timing: the Magi came when they had moved from the stable (Luke 2:7) to a house (Matt 2:11) and was probably a year or so later after Jesus’ birth (which is why Herod killed the boys under two years old).
    Normally I possibly could have put together something but sorry I have got too much on at the moment.
    I hope you have already found some info on it.

  7. Looking for lesson ideas on comparing the two accounts of Jesus’ birth. Doing it for year 6. Any ideas?

  8. I praise the Lord for raising people like you to minister to others in a thousand ways giving glory and praising God that I as a sunday school teacher will learn and gain from your wisdom and understanding!. More blessings to you as you use your giftings for Gods glory and honour! Victoria
