Mrs Watkins visits 1D


Tuesday 12th December marked the beginning of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. Mrs Watkins visited the children in 1D and gave a talk on how The Festival of Lights is celebrated.

The children lit the candles on the menorah and learned that the eight candles represent the eight weeks of Hanukkah. They also learned about celebratory food that is shared and games that are played. The children also had a chance to read and play with a dreidel, which is a spinning die.  At the end of the day the children took home Hanukkah gelt and chocolate teddies, gifts from Isaac and Elizabeth.
