The Big Frieze

The Big Frieze was created by the children of Whitewater C of E Primary School and is on display in the school hall. It illustrates seven of the core concepts explored in the Church of England's Understanding Christianity materials. Effectively, this presents a view of the 'big story' of the Bible.

The Big Frieze enables children to become aware of the wider context of each concept, unit and text studied in Understanding Christianity. Reminding children regularly of where a particular text occurs within the 'big story', by pointing it out in the Big Frieze, helps to build up a coherent understanding of the core concepts and the relationship between them.

For more information about Understanding Christianity, please see the R.E. Curriculum page on this website.
