RE in Sheep Class

We have been learning about the origins of the Jewish celebration of Pesach (Passover), by retelling the story of Moses and the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt. We read the story ‘Moses and the Very Big Rescue’ by Tim Thornborough, and then we acted out the story all together. The children had great fun doing this (especially the ten plagues!) and could explain that the term ‘passover’ comes from when God passed over the houses of the Israelites during the last plague. We also learnt that the word ‘exodus’ comes from the Greek word ‘exo’ meaning ‘exit’. Great learning, Sheep!
