Year 1 Visit to Church - Baptism

As part of their R.E. Year 1 have been learning all about Baptism and made a visit to church for a mock baptism. Children came to school all dressed smartly ready for their special occasion.

The children pretended to be parents and God Parents to the baby doll which they had already chosen the name - Harry James Alfie. The parents were Emily and Ruben, Godparents George, Alex and Ava.

All the children gathered around the font as Sarah the curate, dressed in her robes, poured the water into the font. Sarah made the sign of the cross on the baby’s head.

To finish the service everyone joined in prayers to welcome the baby into church.

Back at school the children had a party to celebrate the baptism.
