Before half term, our children all visited St Mary's Church to learn about parables. The sessions were led by members of our village and church community. One of the parables that th children focused on was 'The Parable of the Sower' which underpins our Christian vision; 'the roots to grow, the wings to fly'. 

This is the Bible story the children were told at an age appropriate level:

This parable tells the story of a foolish farmer or 'sower', who throws his seeds indiscriminately and yields a poor crop. This parable contains an important common sense lesson, as well as a metaphor for always planting ideas and knowledge in fertile ground. 

The parable of the Sower and the Seeds is a metaphor for learning and receiving the word of God. When the sower throws his seeds onto dry ground, among thorns, and onto rocks, they do not grow. It is only when he throws them on good soil that he yields a crop. Many interpret this to mean that knowledge can only be absorbed when it accepted without judgement, worry or ignorance.
