Hanukkah


This week, we've been learning all about the Jewish festival of Hanukkha. Our week started by researching some key aspects of Judaism which we then compared to what we knew about Christianity. 


On Thursday, we then found out all about Hanukkha, the festival of lights. We learnt about its history, what people do and eat during this celebration and why it's important. We made our own dreidles and played a few games of this with our friends.

Later on in the day, we made our own latkes which are potatoe cakes that are sometimes eaten during Hanukkha. We prepared the ingredients using some of our new food preparation skills which we really enjoyed!

Our favourite part was obviously tasting them! Yum!
