Re-enacting the Shabbat Meal

This half term Sheep Class has been learning about some Jewish family traditions. We learned that the day of rest, Shabbat, is a day for families to come together, switch off all electronic devices and enjoy telling stories and playing games. Our Reception children have been very busy preparing for the Shabbat family meal by baking bread and decorating special candle holders for the table. All of the children enjoyed decorating their own ‘Kiddush’ cup to drink the traditional grape juice. We lit a candle and had some time together for reflection, listening to a story and thinking about how we like to spend time with our own families on the weekend.
