In Sheep class, we have (very aptly!) been learning all about the Parable of the Lost Sheep. We read the parable using Mick Inkpen’s wonderful version and we then used a small world tray to act out the story. The children all had a go at retelling the tale, which got progressively more adventurous – the farmer ended up hiking up mountains and crossing volcanoes to find his lost sheep! The children could tell us that we are like the sheep, and God is like the shepherd who always watches over us and looks after us.
