What does it mean to be a Christian? Ten-year-old Nathan explains all about his religion, Christianity, in this Learning Zone programme for primary school children.

Nathan loves building things and playing with his dog Ruby. At church Nathan is an acolyte, so he helps during services. Nathan loves Easter eggs and tells us all about their significance during Christianity's most important festival. Later in the year, he celebrates the birth of Jesus at Christmas - counting down the days on his advent calendar.

13-year-old Kirsty demonstrates how Christians pray and shares how she feels when she talks to God. Kirsty explains her Bible app to us and why using the Bible on a smartphone is easier than using the real thing.

Meanwhile, 8-year-olds Kiera and Santos are preparing for their first holy communion and 12-year-old Ben gets submerged in water at his baptism.

My Life, My Religion: Christianity is one of a series of programmes aimed at Key Stage 2 Religious Studies.
