Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

On Tuesday 19th September, Mrs Carpenter, a parent and member of the Norwich Hebrew Congregation Synagogue came into school to share the ways Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish Day of Atonement mark the Jewish New Year. Mrs Carpenter explained why this is a time to be sorry, and make a fresh start. Instead of January the Jewish New Year begins in autumn. It is important at New Year to repent, turn from bad behaviour and set your course to good in the coming year. Mrs Carpenter also demonstrated and explained why celebrations include food: apples and honey, time spent in the synagogue and the blowing of the Shofar (it is a ram’s horn. One of the world’s oldest known wind instruments)

Fantastic Mr Fox

A group of children from across the school walked into the city centre to watch Fantastic Mr Fox at Norwich Theatre Royal. It was a fantastic experience and the children loved the story of cunning, greed and the power of friendship.


David Solomons Author Visit

On Monday 10th July we were visited by David Solomons, author of ‘My Brother is a Superhero.’ We loved hearing about the inspiration for his popular series of books and suggesting our own idea for a superhero. Children were inspired by the visit and are already busy reading the adventures of Luke and his superhero brother. Don’t forget to look for the signed copies of the series in our school library.
