Celebrating Purim

This week, the children have enjoyed learning about the Jewish holiday of Purim. It commemorates the time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved by a Jewish woman named Esther. We had a virtual visit from Mr Glickman who shared the story of Esther with the children and explained how Jewish people celebrate Purim.

The children finished the week by creating masks of the main characters from the story as these are sometimes used during the celebrations.

It has been wonderful to have all of the children back this week. Children and staff have enjoyed catching up with each other again. Everyone has shown a fantastic attitude and worked hard in class. We are very proud of you – well done!
