R.E. Birthdays- Discover what a birthday is and how it may be celebrated.





We discussed the big questions related to this theme –

Why do we celebrate birthdays? Why do we receive birthday presents on Jesus’


We had a birthday party for Panda, who was 4 years old on Thursday. We made cards, sang happy birthday and celebrated.
