This week the children have been learning about baby Jamie being christened at church. They have enjoyed acting out the christening with some children being the parents and some children being the god parents. We even had a vicar and a congregation. They took their roles very seriously!

In the classroom the children have been trying very hard to find the letters in their name as baby Jamie was christened with his full name.

Some children also made christening candles and christening bracelets.

Some children also made babies at the play dough table and they made babies with christening gowns on at the workshop table.

The children really enjoyed washing the babies in the water trays. They also acted out the role of the vicar, using the water tray as a font, by pouring water over the babies’ heads and drawing the sign of the cross on the babies’ foreheads.

Another busy week in Nursery!
