Class 4 have been learning about the Jewish celebration Shabbat. In groups we followed a recipe to make Challah bread. We then acted out the Shabbat celebration. We all laid the table, the ‘dad’ blessed each family member, the ‘mum’ lit the candles and sprinkled sugar on top of the Challah bread and then we all ate our Challah bread.
Today class 6 went on a Hanukkah hunt around the classroom. They had to work with a partner to find pictures to do with Hanukkah then find the matching words too. We showed great teamwork and had a great time.
Class 6 took part in the Faith Experience today learning all about Hanukkah. We played dreidel and listened to a story all about this celebration. At the end we got to look and ask questions about lots of artifacts to do with Hanukkah. Back in class we made our very own dreidel for us to take home.
Reverend Johnson came to talk to Class5 to tell us all about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. We got to look at lots of different Jewish artefacts, learned all about what Jewish people do to celebrate Hanukkah and we played the game of Dreidel.
