And we are all ready to start!

Welcome back to our school. We hope you had a great summer break and are ready to start what promises to be a great learning year!! Just to get you thinking as we begin our learning, can you answer the following questions?

1. What is the very first Jewish festival we will be celebrating this academic year?

 

2. Which festival do the following items remind you of?

a. Shofar, apple and honey. New Year cards?

b. Non leather shoes, fasting

c. Eating in a hut, shaking the four species

d. Sefer Torah, flag

Let your RE teacher know if you managed to get any of these answers right! 

We look forward to working with you this year!

Shavuot is coming! This is the time when we celebrate the receiving of the Torah! In school we will be learning all about Shavuot and the 10 commandments.  Can you guess how these pictures relate to Shavuot?
