Learning about baptism in Year 2.
It has been RE week this week at Hazlehurst. In year 2 we have been learning about how children are baptised into the Christian faith. We looked at all the symbols which represent a baptism. We found out about the candle, christening gown, oil and what actually happens in the ceremony. We made our own crosses to show our understanding of all the different symbols. We also looked at the importance of water as part of the ceremony and found out that it symbolises 'a fresh start or new life' We will also be learning about the festival Hannukkah which is being celebrated by the Jewish community over the coming days.
