In RE the children in Year 2 have continued learning about Baptism this week. The children spent some time learning about the anointing with Chrism Oil. The children understand that the Chrism Oil represents the Holy Spirit; so when some is anointed with Chrism Oil they receive the Holy Spirit.
They know that the Holy Spirit is Jesus’ friend who gives us strength and helps us to have courage throughout our lives.
During Collective Worship, the children had a go at blessing each other with Chrism Oil and using the words of the priest
“……… receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”
