Description

A family is shown preparing food for a baptism celebration, with the narration provided by the baby's older brother. In the church, the vicar explains that when the baby is baptised, he becomes part of God's family and can listen to stories about Jesus in the Bible. The vicar also explains that baptism is a new beginning and the sign of the cross shows that the baby is special to God.

Classroom Ideas

Recap and discuss what the children saw in the clip. Has anyone in the class been baptised? Provide the children with lots of pictures and words associated with Christians. The children could cut out the baptism pictures and words, and stick them into their books. The pictures may include a font, an advent ring, a baby, an Easter egg, a cross and a wedding dress.
