Year 5 Collective Worship

On Tuesday, we learned from Father Chris about the process of ordination, linking to our RE topic, ‘Vocation & Commitment’.

In RE we have been focusing on Welcome, we spoke about welcoming a new baby into our family and God’s family. We looked at the role of a family, godparents and parts of the church such as the font, baptism candle and the preist. We had so much fun acting out the baptisms in class. Later that week we went to visit the church and we saw another baptism.
