To continue with our topic on ‘Festivals and Celebrations’, we have been learning about another festival of light. This week we have learnt about the Jewish festival of light called Hanukkah. We looked in detail about the special candlestick called a Menorah and how the oil was only meant to burn for one night but it lasted eight nights. We took on the role of news reporters and had to carefully name and describe a Menorah. We thought of our own sentences and spoke in our ‘talking tins’ so we didn’t forget what we wanted to write. We listened back to what we had said and wrote our sentences down in our books. Afterwards we got to design and make our own menorahs out of Lego!
