Jewish Celebrations

Children in Pre-school at St Paul’s learnt about the Jewish celebration “Sukkot”. We learnt that the Jewish say thank you to God for providing them with everything they need. To commemorate this, they build shelters called ‘Sukkah’ where they eat their meals and sometimes sleep for seven days. The Sukkah is traditionally decorated with things that have been grown from the ground. We made our own Sukkah in the Pre-school playground, decorating it with pictures of fruit. We also learnt some traditional Jewish dances.
