Our Governor, Linda Edward, came into school today to talk to us about the Jewish festival of Hannukah.
Linda began by explaining to the children all about Latke, a fried potato cake. She had made some and brought them in especially for everyone to try. She then talked about the festival of Hannukah and showed us her Menorah. She talked about what the candles symbolise, and about how Jewish people celebrate Hannukah. She showed us her dreidl and explained why these are important to Jewish people.
At the end of the assembly we were all given a chocolate coin.
Thank you very much to Linda for coming and sharing her faith with us. It is great that we are able to hear about other faiths and how they celebrate their special festivals.
