Y1 shaking lulav and etrog Year 1 children had the opportunity of learning how to shake the lulav and etrog this morning.

We then had our snack in the succah. All the children were very grateful that it stopped raining so we could do this lovely mitzva!

Reception celebrates Succot with breakfast in the succah!!

Despite the drizzly weather, Reception and some of the class' parents braved the element to enjoy a lovely breakfast in the succah. Children treated all those present to a succot version of the Hockie Cokie song!! All the Mums and Mr Langford joined in the singing.

" You put your lulav in, you put your lulav out. You put your lulav in and you shake it all about..."
