ICT for Chanukah brochure

Year 5 and 6 Limudei Kodesh have been working on putting together their own brochure with information about Chanukah. This not only enables them to have a go at using Microsoft Publisher, but also, in order to choose what to write, they have to do their own research under the guidance of Mrs Cohen. The results so far are looking great!!

Hiding from the Greeks

 

Reception has been learning all about Chanukah and how the wicked king Antiochus issued a decree forbiding the Jewish people from learning Torah. Children would go out into the mountains and hide in caves to learn Torah. Our Reception children had tremendous fun finding a "cave" to hide, using the class tables as their cave!! They hid very carefully, singing the Alef Bet while Mrs Halter, our token "Greek soldier" patrolled the room trying to find who was learning Torah!!

Israeli Dance

Every Tuesday lunchtime Mrs Cooper ( our outstanding teacher ) takes Years 4, 5 and 6 for Israeli Dance. They are taught traditional dances from Israel. The children are given the  opportunity to take part in a festival in London each year, which over the years King David School has developed an outstanding performance rate. Furthermore the children also participate in school festivals and show the whole school some amazing dances.
