Our topic in Religious Education is ‘Belonging’ and in Reception and Nursery we having been talking and finding out about Baptism.
The children enjoyed joining together and acting out a Baptism in the school hall.
We discussed the signs and symbols of Baptism.
The children decided the baby’s name was George.
We choose some parents and godparents for baby George.
We had a priest to baptise the baby.
When the water was poured over baby George’s head we all said together “George, I baptise you, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Some of the children have enjoyed bringing in pictures of their own Baptism to share in class.
