Year 2: Judaism

In R.E. we discussed other religions and focused on Judaism. The children learnt all about Shabbat. Shabbat is a very special day for Jewish people and the name itself comes from the Hebrew word for Sabbath.

How Shabbat is celebrated:

Celebrating Shabbat in a Jewish home. … Just before dark, the mother lights the Shabbat candles and recites a prayer. The family drinks wine or grape juice from silver goblets and receives a blessing from the grandfather. They explain that Shabbat is a time to talk and celebrate with family.

Children designed and labelled a poster for all the items that are linked to the celebration of Shabbat. This included: silver goblets, wine and fruit juice, challah bread, candles, a white tablecloth, and silver cutlery.

Children took part in putting together a display for our new Judaism themed R.E. table.

  1. For Mr Owen – It’s lovely to be able to see on here all the great things the children have been up to but its been a little difficult to find a lot of it as when you go into ‘school life’ under year 2, it still has all the blogs from last year’s children so currently you have to just work your way through all of the more recent blogs to see if there are any for our year 2 class….

    • Thanks for your comment -I wasn’t aware of this until your feedback. I will have our web developer look into it. Thanks -Mr Turner.

    • Hi Helen, as always, thank you for your continued support – it’s much appreciated! There’s been several issues with WordPress this year but I have spoken with our web developer and I am confident that, going forward, future blogs will be much easier for you to find. I will also be going back over past blogs and updating the tags.
