Reception Learning about Hanukkah

A big thank you to Oliver in Year 6 and Tiggy in Year 5 for coming to talk to Reception about Hanukkah last week.

Reception learnt lots about this festival of light and they even had a go at writing Hebrew letters. They taught them how to play a game with a dreidel and all the children in the class were given a dreidel to take home! Reception looked at a 100 year old Menorah and talked about the kind of food that might be eaten when it is Hanukkah.

In outdoor learning last week, Reception made the ‘Star of David’ symbol using sticks and learnt about adding and taking away using the Menorah candles in maths.

Happy Hanukkah!
