Year 2 children celebrated the end of their R.E. topic on Local Church and Community by creating an image inspired by the story of Jesus being baptised by John the Baptist. Children used oil pastels to create an image of baptism.
…Until this time, Jesus had spent most of his earthly life in quiet obscurity. Suddenly, he appeared on the scene, walking up to John in the River Jordan. He came to John to be baptised, but John told him, “I need to be baptised by you.” John wondered why Jesus had asked to be baptised. Jesus replied: “Let it be so” After Jesus was baptised, he came up from the water, the heavens opened and he saw the Holy Spirit descending on him like a dove. God spoke from heaven saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am pleased.”
