Nursery Celebrate Rosh Hashanah


This week we celebrated Rosh Hashanah in the Nursery.

One of the children brought in honey and fruit to share.  We learnt that sweet things are eaten in the hope that the year to come is sweet.  We also learnt that the fruits eaten contain lots of seeds and that this represents all the good deeds we will be doing during the year.  We thought of ways in which we could be kind and caring towards each other.  All of the children had the opportunity to taste the different fruits on offer which were apples, pomegranate seeds and figs.  They had fun dipping their fruit into the sweet tasting honey and the bread (challah) was very popular.  When joining in with the morning and afternoon register, we greeted each other with the traditional greeting, ‘Shana Tova’ which means good year in Hebrew.  To mark the occasion, both Nursery classes came together to further develop their understanding of this special celebration and were delighted with the homemade honey biscuits that were shared at the end.
