Reflective Learning Proves Popular with Pre-Prep
In religious studies this term, Year 1 pupils have been studying Jewish beliefs and practices. Recently, they enjoyed learning about traditional Jewish objects, including the Star of David.
One of their favourite practices was Shabbat, Judaism’s day of rest, and the seventh day of the week. Shabbat observance often entails refraining from work activities and embracing restful activities instead. Everyone agreed that this would be wonderful to practice to carry out at least once a week.
Inspired by this routine, the children spent last week baking Challah bread in preparation for a delicious feast. Complete with Kiddush cups and a Havdalah candle, the children sat down to enjoy their Jewish cuisine. They also used this time to talk to one another about the week ahead and all that they were excited for over the coming days.
Head of Pre-Prep, Claire Luckhurst said: “It was a special experience for all of the children. We do not always find the time to stop and think in our busy lives, so this was a meaningful exercise for all – even us teachers!”
