A family is shown preparing food for a baptism celebration, with the narration provided by the baby's older brother. In the church, the vicar explains that when the baby is baptised, he becomes part of God's family and can listen to stories about Jesus in the Bible. The vicar also explains that baptism is a new beginning and the sign of the cross shows that the baby is special to God.

This clip could be used to discuss why people get baptised. Ask whether anyone in the class has been baptised and what they know about their baptism (when it happened, who went, who their Godparents are, gifts they received). The children could create crosses like the one made by the vicar in the clip.
