Primary school indoctrination (UK)

My kids (girls 5 and 7) recently returned from school really excited because they had seen a great play and been given fantastic comics about how God and his son Jesus made the world etc.

See the bottom of the page of the link above, and there is a link there to a video from the play.

I was quite upset at a lot of what the comic said: it implied that the actors in the play were really angels in disguise, it offered a completely creationist view of life stating that God made the animals, and offered the kids the chance to draw some of "HIS" creations.

I don't mind that my kids are taught hymns at school and have prayers but this is something far more sinister, it is brand marketing of Christianity.

Has anyone one else seen similar Christian brand marketing of this kind?
