In RE we have been learning about the 'Signs and Symbols' of Baptism, focusing on each stage of the baptismal ceremony.
To celebrate the end of the topic we visited Father Michael in church who explained each of the stages while some of the children acted out the Baptism.
We had our very own priest in Father Ted, parents Thomas and Lauren, Godparents Elijah and Gracie and baby Elizabeth (our doll, dressed in a beautiful Christening gown worn by Mrs Purvis when she was baptised).
The children did a wonderful job and it was a lovely way to end our topic.
Father Michael also talked to the children about the stained class windows above the altar - each of the 7 Sacraments being beautifully depicted.
A big thank you to Father Michael.
