R.E. : Learning about the Jewish festival of Sukkot

This week we have been learning about the week long harvest festival of Sukkot, which takes place from Sunday,13 October and ends in the evening of Sunday,20 October.

The children explored the meaning behind the festival, and how the Jewish community celebrate Sukkot by dwelling in a foliage-covered booth (known as a sukkah). The class attempted at building their very own Sukkah and discussed the materials they would use to keep these up for the week long festival. The class reflected on the meaning of Sukkot and made links to the Christian festival of Harvest.
