Sweet Start to the New Year
In Nursery and Year 2 this week, children celebrated the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah today. Apple dipped in honey was tasted to celebrate the start of a 'sweet' new year, and the children enjoyed trying this a lot! Places of worship were discussed and the ones they may have visited. Rania said, "My Daddy goes to the mosque to pray."
Two Year 4 pupils, Isla and Jessica talked to their class about the Jewish New Year. They explained how it is a time for growth and showed them a shofar explaining that hearing its call is a reminder to look inward and reflect.
They also shared some traditional foods with the class.
As well as this, Nursery children started their farm animals topic.
They were challenged to sort animals into distinct groups and count them, which was part of their mathematics learning experience. The best part though was making farm animal face masks and have been learning a farm related song.
