Our Work


This week we have been learning about Baptisms. We talked about our own baptisms and what it means to be welcomed into God’s family. We acted out a baptism, made baptism cards and made our own baptism candles. 

Year 2 have been learning about the signs and symbols of Baptism: The water, the white garment, the candle, the oil of chrism.

Year 3


Today we read the following story:

When he was teaching the people, and trying to help them, Jesus told this story about two sons who made choices. Choices always have consequences. Listen to the story:

There was once a man who had two sons. He went to the older one and said, “Son, go and work in the vineyard today.”

 “I don’t want to,” he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing.  “Yes, sir,” he answered, but he did not go.

Which one of the two did what his father wanted?

Now Jesus was in the Temple teaching when he told this story, so he said to the people who were listening, “What do you think? Which of the two sons did what his father wanted?”  And they all said, “the first.”

Matthew 21: 28-31

We held a debate with half the class being the first son, the other half being the second.  We prepared our justification for the choices in groups first and then the two brothers spoke about their choices and how it affected other people. 

As a class, we reflected on the activity and how what we heard may affect how us and others make choices in future.

Our class was encouraged to bring in artefacts from their own baptism to show to the class!

Today we recreated the painting above and after a discussion about what we could see in this painting, we spoke about how Jesus was brought up in the Jewish faith to love and know God.

To love our God with all our heart❤️
