Year 5

On Friday afternoon, Year 5 had a special visitor to teach us all about Judaism. We learnt about special festivities in the Jewish calendar and the history behind them. Did you know Jewish people celebrate the Sabbath on Saturdays?


To get a good experience, we tried some foods which would be placed on the Sedar Plate during Passover. We tried things such as Matzo (Jewish cracker), horseradish and apples dipped in honey. Some of us had the opportunity to try on some artefacts used during prayer. Do you know what they are called?


We enjoyed seeing the artefacts and learning lots of new information.
