Hanukkah, shapes and elves!

posted 2 Dec 2017, 13:26 by Jenny Sparkes

This week the children have been learning about the a Jewish festival of light, Hanukkah. They have listened to the story of Hanukkah and the miracle of the oil lamp that took place in a temple. Part of the Jewish tradition is to have food cooked in oil so at forest school we made pancakes on the fire. Mrs Harris told us about Hanukkah and even spoke some Hebrew for us. 
The children carried on learning about shape by using sticks to make 2D shapes and to talk about the sides and corners. We have also been busy preparing for one of our Christmas dances.
