Year 3 trip to the Synagogue

Yesterday, our Year 3 class went to visit the Hebrew Congregation Synagogue in St Annes. This linked to their learning in RE, as we had been studying the Jewish festival of Sukkot, as part of our Harvest unit, and wanted to learn more about this festival. We all felt so welcomed by Rabbi Danny Bergstrom and the members of his congregation. Everyone (the teachers included) learned so much about the history of Judaism, what it is like to live as a Jew in modern society and we also had the opportunity to look at sacred artefacts. The children asked some excellent questions, which really kept the Rabbi on his toes! What an excellent trip! Well done to Year 3 for their wonderful behaviour throughout.
