In nursery we have been talking a lot about ourselves and our families. Leo and Hollie had some wonderful news to share as they have both recently welcomed a new baby into their families. This made us think a lot about what a family needs to do to get ready for a new baby. After looking at some books and having our own discussions, we decided to invite the new babies into our class. We were very sensible and quiet as we asked their mummies questions about how a baby is welcomed into a family.
As part of our Come and See topic (Welcome) we then started to think about how a baby is welcomed into Gods family. We really enjoyed learning all about Baptism and the important roles that people play within the special celebration. On Friday we acted out a Baptism ceremony using dolls from our home corner.
