If you have a school group of children who would like to participate in the Cumbria then firstly, please complete and return the registration form. You will need to do this so we can send you a ‘Challenge Pack’ for each child. This contains a cover page (which doubles as a sticker template), the eight stickers which make up the picture, and a plastic wallet to keep everything together.
Secondly, you will need to appoint a ‘Challenge Checker’. The Challenge Checker must be responsible for every child’s set of stickers. They should ensure that each child has completed the activity each month before awarding the corresponding sticker. It might be easiest if this person is the person delivering the lesson.
Details of the whole challenge are available here. You will need to print a copy of the page for each of the children in your group. As well as the activity which they must complete, you will find extra tasks that will help the children find out more about the Gospel stories. The children’s work can be stored in their Challenge Pack to keep everything together.
The children need to have completed all eight challenges to collect the stickers and receive their certificate.
Thirdly, instructions for each challenge have been written for the participating children to work on individually. You may like to work on some aspects of the task as a group. This is up to you.
After you have completed the challenge, you will need to download certificates for all the children who have completed all eight challenges. We hope the presentation of the certificates will be done in partnership with the local church as part of a celebration event.
We hope this gives you all the information you need, however if you would like any further information about the Cumbria Bible Challenge please contact Sarah Hulme.
