Today, in SMSC, the children in Red, Orange and Yellow group developed an understanding of how babies are welcomed into different religions. They looked at the different ceremonies or rituals that followers of each religion participate in. For this activity they looked closely at Christianity and Islam.
Have a look at the videos below, of the children explaining how certain religions welcome babies.
