Nursery's words Autumn week 10
This week the children have been learning about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that lasts for eight nights and usually occurs in December. In 164 BC, the Jewish reclaimed their land and rebuilt, cleaned and rededicated their temple. The oil that they found to light the temple was only a small amount but they managed to make it last for eight nights. To celebrate these eight nights, people light candles on a branched candlestick called a Menorah which is why it is also known as the Festival of Lights.
The children have enjoyed making a special spinner called a dreidel and exploring the religious items like the menorah.
In our nursery, we give plentiful opportunities for children to take turns and work collaboratively so this week, the children played games and helped each other with their learning. Outside, we were happy to see that the boys worked independently together to create a game using the cars and available resources.
We are continuing to practise our songs up in the chapel for our Nursery Rhyme Nativity and we have had some costumes come in from some parents too. Brilliant and thank you! Please can we ask that all costumes be in by Wednesday 1 December.
