In RE, the boys and girls are enjoying learning about the Jewish faith.
They began by locating Jerusalem and the Western Wall and discussed why these are special places to Jewish people. They then identified objects which would be found in a synagogue and learned about their importance.
The children then visited Newcastle Reform Synagogue and found out about why it is such an important building and what happens there.
Since their visit, the children have learned about the Jewish festival of Purim. They have recalled the story of Esther and understood that her courage enabled her to save the lives of the Jewish people in Persia.
