This half term, the children in the Nursery and the Reception classes have be learning about the Church. The children have begun to understand that we call the Church the family of God. They learnt that a church building is a holy place where we can all pray and are welcome.

The children learnt that Jesus is present in a special way in the Blessed Sacrament and he invites us to be with him. They also learnt to be thankful that lots of people help to look after the church and know why Sunday is a special day.

At home

you could help your child by:

  • visiting church, either for Mass or another time, to talk about the church
  • reminding them what a special place a Church is and reasons why
  • talking to your child about their Baptism, explaining how this was the day
  • that they became part of God’s family.
