RE/Worship

As part of our Baptism unit, the children brought in photographs of them being christened. We then discussed what happens at a baptism. We then spoke about why baptism is special to Christians. Abeyson told us that in Hinduism, the ceremony is traditionally known as Namkaran or Namakarana Sanskar, this ceremony is conducted in an elaborate form on the 31st day after birth in Sri Lanka.

This afternoon we went to church for a baptism. Father  Peter explained why baptisms happened. He also explained why babies are normally baptised. He then explained the three different parts of a baptism, the holy water, the holy and the baptism candle. We used a doll, called Lucy-Ann and we also had parents and godparents. Father Peter conducted the ceremony, like he normally would. The other children responded as the congregation would.

Today we started our new topic of ‘baptism’. Using our “chatterbox” the children were shown different items and had to decide what our new topic was. firstly, the children were shown cotton wool, baby wipes and a soft toy. The children realised the new topic was about babies. We then showed the children a christening robe, socks and a hat. We asked the children where they think a baby would wear them. They then knew it was a for a baptism. We then discussed why a candle, a certificate and prayer hands are a symbol of baptism.

Today we lead the worship. We spoke about making decisions in life and how some decisions are hard. We learnt that you can always talk to God. Using our story telling actions we told the story of "The wise man who built his house upon the rock". We then performed the song to our audience. We learnt about what the bible said about making decisions. Thank you to all those family and friends that came to watch us!

We watched a video about the shoe box appeal. The children were very interested to see where the shoe boxes went. The children were very keen to help. We decided as a class to make a shoe box for a baby. We brought in lots of  different baby items.
