Cleadon Church of England Academy

Knitted Bible


From the 11th to the 15th of February Cleadon Church of England Academy was host to The Knitted Bible.  The display was created by the congregation of St George's URC in Hartlepool and contains 33 knitted scenes depicting some of our best-known Bible stories. 

Our children loved taking part in the Knitted Bible trail which encouraged them to spot key elements in the scenes and to reflect on the meaning of the stories. Every year group from Nursery to Year 6 took part in this activity and we received lots of very positive feedback on their experience.

As well as our school staff, parents and children we extended an invitation to local schools and church groups. The event was even covered by our local newspaper. Click here to go to read the article.

I It was all great but I enjoyed the Adams and Eve part best. It must have taken a lot of time and effort".
