Year 6 visiting the Bristol Progressive Synagogue

Today we are learning about the Jewish faith.

Year 6 today visited The Bristol West Progressive Synagogue.

It was a great trip that enhanced and developed the learning that has been taking place in the classroom. The children learnt about what happens in a synagogue and learnt about Shabbat in more detail. They were lucky enough to try on prayer shawls, wear kippahs and look at a Torah that was over seventy years old and had been saved during World War Two. At the end of the session, they enjoyed tasting Challah bread that had been made by the lady hosting our visit.
