Oscar Out Of The Box

Published April 2016

This KS1 worship resource, that follows the pattern of worship established in Roots and Fruits, features 24 Bible stories retold by Bob Hartman, written especially for Imaginor.

Oscar, the owl puppet, gives a bird’s eye view as each story unfolds and adds his insights – interacting with pupils as he becomes part of this special worship time. Once again a worship box is used, containing a coloured worship cloth appropriate to the season of the church year, a story Bible, cross and candles plus props with which to help tell the story in a way children will remember. (Details of the Church seasons can be found in the ‘Free Downloads‘ section of this website.)

The pattern of worship follows that used in other Imaginor publications and pupils will quickly learn the set responses and songs (if used).

  • The Welcome section invites children to prepare themselves for worship.
  • Children Learn through an interactive Bible story retold by Bob Hartman.
  • They Reflect on the significance of the story to them.
  • And Respond as they join in a closing prayer and consider their response to the story they’ve heard.

Two sessions are provided for each of 12 Imaginor values, each with a clear learning focus which is developed through questions to consider in the ‘Reflection’ time.

Oscar, the owl puppet, can be purchased from Imaginor Ltd or from The Puppet Company Ltd.
