Happy Hanukkah!

This week in R.E. we have been learning about Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of light. We learnt about the story of Hanukkah and why it is important to Jewish people.

We looked at how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. Jewish people light a candle each night for 8 nights on a Menorah. They also celebrate by eating special food, playing games and giving gifts, similar to Christian celebrations at Christmas.

Jessica said that Hanukkah is a celebration of something in the past, like when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.
