3b weekly update

This week we learned about a Jewish festival called Yom Kippur. It is a festival of atonement and so we wrote sorry prayers which we then ceremoniously tore up and threw into a ‘river’.  We also made Challah bread, bread boards decorated with Hebrew writing and painted Kiddish cups. At  the end of the day we had a feast of our Challah bread with hummus and dipped raisins and apples in honey. It was delicious and not a crumb was left!

In French, we have now learned numbers up to 20. We are looking forward to playing French bingo next week!

On Wednesday, we had a 2 minutes silence to think about the people who have fought for us. Bethany did some fantastic research about Remembrance Day which she read to us all. She also did research about Children in Need. Some of us had our photos taken with Pudsey and we all dressed up in sports clothes on Friday to support the cause.

We have started a new text in English called Krindlekrax. So far, we are really enjoying it and have made some predictions about what might happen. We think there will be a dragon in it. Stay posted and we will let you know if we were right!
