Year 5 Trip to the Jewish Museum

Willow and Chestnut Tree classes visited the Jewish Museum in Camden last Friday. For their RE lessons, they have been learning about Jewish festivals such as Sukkot and Hannukah. During their trip, they took part in workshops focusing on the different Jewish festivals. They learnt about Hanukkah and Passover and sampled different foods which are eaten during these festivals. They handled special objects used during the celebrations, such as the Hanukkah menorah (a nine-branched candle holder) and a shofar (a horn made from ram horns). Year 5 also made Shabbat candles and learnt about the holy day of rest.
