Baptism in Year Two

We have been learning about Baptism in Year Two.  We discussed the importance of the White Garment by representing purity and welcoming the baby into the Christian family though support of parents and Godparents.  The children found different white resources in the classroom such as, white cotton wool, rice and white cubes, to use to decorate a White Garment.  The children thought about the different parts of the White Garment and produced some fabulous finished pieces!

Father Dave came into school to have a discussion with the children about Baptism.  He brought in a Baptismal Candle and explained how it is lit from the Easter Candle.  Father brought in some Oil of Chrism for the children to explore and discussed the different signs and symbols relating to Baptism.
