Celebrating other Cultures – Hannukah

December 19, 2014

As part of our PSHE programme the Year 4 children learn about different religions so that they have a better understanding and more respect for differences. This term our focus was on the Jewish religion and we were lucky enough to have a visitor, Mrs Cohen, who helped us understand a little more about her culture. We learned about how Hannukah came about, the importance of the candles, and what people around the world will be doing celebrating Hannukah. It was a hands on experience, with the children being able to paint oil containers and play with dreidels.
