27th November – Hanukkah and our special lockdown birthday party
This week we have found out about the Jewish celebration of Hannukah which will be celebrated in early December.
We have also been busy learning our lines and practising acting and saying our words in ‘big playground voices’ ready for our nativity play. We have had a lot of fun dressing up in our costumes and have been out and about on adventures to film this.
On Friday afternoon we were all very excited to join in our class party to celebrate with the four children who had had birthdays during the November lockdown. We made party hats and played musical bumps, sleeping lions and musical statues before sitting down to eat jelly and ice cream followed by birthday cake. Then we went off on a very exciting treasure hunt which took us all around the school – inside and outside – hunting for clues until we found the treasure – two parcels which we brought inside to play pass-the-parcel!
