Description: 1 Give each child a copy of the Bartimaeus model and help them to cut it out. Help them to cut out the faces and fix Blu-tack to the back of each.

2 Ask the children if they can remember the amazing thing that happened in the story. Can they remember how Bartimaeus felt? Tell or review the Bible story (‘A man by the road’ from Big Bonus Sheet C or below), encouraging the children to use their cut-out faces as you do.
