Last week our Year Six children led a very moving service on Remembrance Day. We invited parents and our Local Priest, Father Weymes to join us in our assembly. We know that war and conflict have touched the lives of so many people in our local area and the whole school enjoyed taking a moment to remember the people that have given up so much for all of us.
In Judaism, we have learnt a lot. One of the things we have learned is how to play the Dreidel game and we made our own Dreidel.
