Have you celebrated this festival (Jewish New Year)? If you have, do you have any ideas you can share? I know I was part of a pre-school yeas ago that celebrated it, but all I can remember is that we had apples dipped in honey for snack.

Thanks in advance! :1b

Do you have any Jewish children in your setting?

was going to ask the same question sunnyday - we only celebrate with the religions we have - at the moment that is christian,chinese and polish so those will be the celebrations we will be covering.

our eyst (lovely lady) said it isn't really relevant to be covering every celebration as it will mean nothing to any of the children.

we also don't go mad with these celebrations - usually a small chat about it and put books, pictures and bits on our interest table covering this.

heehee just being cheeky really...i knew you knew! worth checking what the families do though too if you get a chance. I knew a bit about christmas in Russia but my Russian family last year said they did not celebrate because they had never been given the opportunity under the political regime...she knew nothing about the Christmas nativity or any celebrations attached to it!

hi we checked with the polish family they celebrate more on christmas eve - they do lots of cleaning and don't eat until the first star is seen on christmas eve!

also something about a man being the first to cross the threshold of the house but can't remember when or why so will have to find out about that again.
