We were so pleased that Counties’ Key to Life bus came too – Designed for Key Stage 2 primary school children, Key to Life? is a cutting-edge mobile experience which delivers elements of the RE syllabus. Using floor to ceiling touch screens, children can watch films, interact with games and quizzes and take part in small group discussions – helping them explore what Christians believe, and understand how the story of Jesus is the key to Christianity.
