KS1 have been exploring events which are celebrated in different faiths. They asked themselves the question - How and why do we celebrate special events?
Blossom class looked at Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of light.
They talked about the Hanukkah Menorah, the special candle holder and made one themselves using paper.
Chestnut Class have been talking about the approach to Christmas. They learned that this time is called 'Advent'
They know advent is what Christians call their countdown to Christmas. They collected green leaves and berries to make wreaths and made candles to add to them, writing on their significance and the reason they are lit.
