Chrism Oil

Chrism Oil

In our RE topic about Baptism, Year 2 have learnt about Chrism oil. The children know that the baby is blessed with Chrism oil. This is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will help and guide the baby through their life, helping them to make wise choices and live like Jesus.

The children then took part in some role play, blessing each other with Chrism oil and saying the words of the priest

” ………… receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

Baptism

Baptism

Year 2 went to church to learn more about Baptism. Father Rose talked about the things that happen during a baptism service and what these symbolise. These included; chrism oil, white robe, holy water, baptismal candle and the sign of the cross.

 

Baptism with Fr. Rose…

This week we went down to church to talk to Fr. Rose about baptism. He showed us the font where children get baptised and some of the other items needed for this sacrament. He also talked to us about Jesus’ baptism and about the signs and symbols of this important event. Fr. Rose was very impressed that we knew so much about baptism! Well done Year 1!

Year 4 – Jesus’ Family Tree

Year 4 had the task of researching Jesus’ family tree today. We used our iPads to investigate who may have been in Jesus family. We also used The book of Matthew which gave us a strong starting point. While conducting our research we made a great discovery, we found out that the book of Luke can trace Jesus’ family all the way back to Adam and Eve!
