Exploring Artefacts

  • newspaper-1-small[7].jpg


This week, the children in Year 6 have had the opportunity to explore a number of religious artefacts linked to Judaism.
The class got to look at different artefacts, such as a menorah and a seder plate, and discussed what it might tell them about the Jewish faith. The children made predictions about what the artefact could be used for before reading about them to find out its actual use.
After, Keal said, “It is disrespectful to touch the Torah so a pointer, called a yad, is used.  The Torah takes a long time to read too.”  Lucia added, “The kippah is a special head ware that is worn by Jewish people in order to show respect for God.”
