Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

Good afternoon parents/carers,

Evia team hopes that you are all well.

We have been learning and celebrating Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). We have read the story ‘Apples and honey’, so children can understand what this festivity is about. We looked at the differences and similarities with other cultures.











We had our first cooking lesson, making honey biscuits to rejoice the Jewish New Year. Evia children helped making them by measuring the ingredients, mixing them and rolling the dough into balls. We really had fun!!




Apples symbolise hope for the sweet year ahead, therefore children have apples for their snack and made some apple printing.


We would like to wish you a lovely weekend and looking forward to seeing you next week.

Mrs Lowe & Mrs Bruno

P.S. You will find a sheet with “Proud Clouds” in your child’s bags. These are for you to write a little note, every week, telling us what amazing things your children do at home and why you feel proud of them.
