We study Judaism for one week in November and each year, our pupils learn more about how their Jewish sisters and brothers live and what they believe.
This week (w.b. 14.11.22) pupils have embraced the following aspects of the Jewish faith:
Year 1: Learning about Abraham and Moses
Year 2: Families gathering in prayer for Shabbat
Year 3: The importance of the synagogue
Year 4: The importance of the Torah
Year 5: Festival of Pesach (a time for remembering how much God cares for His people)
Year 6: Yom Kippur (Belonging and Values)
In the Summer Term, our Reception pupils will be introduced to special Jewish days and ritual objects and they will have the opportunity to learn about Hannukah, the festival of lights.
Reception classes embraced Diwali through singing and dancing. They listened to the story of Rama and Sita and made puppets to retell the main events. The playdoh diva lamps and Rangoli patterns look amazing in the classrooms.
