Rosh Hasanha is a Jewish festival which is celebrated in September. It marks the start of the Jewish new year. At is a time of celebration but also a time for people to reflect on the past year and to make amends for anything they may have done wrong. As part of the celebration apple, honey and pomegranate are eaten to represent the good and sweet things that hopefully will come during the year to come.
Class 5ST lead our celebration of Purim, a Jewish festival. They shared lots of interesting information including the customs and traditions of the festival, their noisemakers (which we even used during a reading of The Story of Esther) and even sang a Purim song in Hebrew!
