Reception visit Longhoughton Church

27th October 2023

On Friday 27th October during the afternoon the Reception children visited Longhoughton Church as part of their RE work. The children learnt about Baptism from Revd. Alison and our class doll Georgia had a special service where she was Baptised in the font. We talked about the importance of the water which is linked to life and well being and also talked about God and how we are all very important to him. After the ceremony we took back to school a special candle, a Baptism certificate and a card which usually would be given to the Godparents. We all had special roles to play; Mum, Dad, siblings, cousins and Godparents and everyone had a great time at the celebration – we even had cake afterwards!
