The Psalms 

At school, we are learning about how the Bible celebrates creation in prayer.


Explain to the children:

The Israelites were people who lived a long time ago, they wrote stories about God’s creation. 

They also wrote songs about God’s creation.

They wrote poems about Poems.

They used these songs and poems when they prayed to God (Liturgies).


Show the children a Bible and tell them that in the OT there is a book called THE BOOK OF PSALMS (poems and songs).


Tell children that there are many different types of psalms eg happy, sad, complaining, worried, angry, etc.


Teach children how to sing Psalm 23 – THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
