CRiBS in Primary
CRiBS team are in schools every day of the school week.
We lead assemblies, and deliver a portfolio of specially prepared RE lessons (including for Nursery and Reception classes) covering all aspects of the Christian faith. Our lessons are compatible with the RE Syllabus of most schools. All our lessons are written by the team and have been revised and honed over many years. CRiBS lessons have played a huge part in raising the standard of Christian teaching within the borough of Bexley. See our 2018-19 report.
Boys Noise is hugely in demand by primary schools who are seeing pupils improve in social skills, academically and in their behaviour. It is a three stranded package of support which includes small group sessions and After-school club and access to a computer programme to help with literacy. It is offered over one term but has proved so successful that we are often invited to return. See our brochure.
Taking Off is CRiBS' transition programme for Year 6 pupils heading for a new exciting destination! It includes a drama presentation followed by workshops and is designed to give pupils a 'smooth ride and landing' as they leave primary and join their new secondary schools.
We have been supporting schools by providing online assemblies with moral, spiritual and social principles applied. These are typically around 15 minutes long and are currently free to schools. They can be accessed at this link.
For over 20 years we have been providing Christmas and Easter plays in primary schools. While we are hoping to be able to offer schools a live production of our seasonal plays this year, subject to up-to-date Covid-19 restrictions, we will definitely be offering a pre-recorded, made for video online production. Contact us if you'd like access to this resource.
We are booking now for Easter and Christmas 2021.
b:You is similar in design to the Boys Noise programme but is adapted to explore the issues faced by primary school girls. It particularly encourages girls to 'Be yourself'; building their sense of value and social confidence through taking part in new activities together and discussing issues such as self image. See our brochure and also our flyers for b:You Online and b:You Confident. You can find our 2018-19 report here.
Our Living Values lessons have been very well received in primary schools. We offer a range of 'values' that can be delivered to classes or the whole school. Topics include Friendship, Thoughtfulness, Cooperation, Courage and Respect.
