We learnt about Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish new year. We learnt that Rosh HaShanah commemorates the creation of the world and is a time for asking for forgiveness of sins. Jewish people celebrate this special time by eating symbolic foods such as bread and apples, which are dipped into honey. The honey represents a 'sweet' new year ahead. We observed some close up photographs of bees, then each painted a bee to display in our classroom. This tied in nicely with our minibeast topic too! We explored some real honeycomb from a bee hive and tried apples and bread dipped in honey.
