Princes Road Synagogue
On Wednesday 15th March 2017, Year 6 visited Princes Road Synagogue as part of their RE sessions on Judaism.
We were greeted by a lovely lady called Naomi who gave us a detailed explanation about the history of this wonderful Synagogue. She guided us around the inside of the place of worship and taught us about the Synagogue and all of the items used during different services.
When we were leaving, Naomi spoke to Mrs Cochrane about what a fantastic group of children we were and how she was ‘astounded’ by our existing knowledge of Judaism and how we were so respectful and understanding of a different faith. Mrs Cochrane said she felt extremely proud of us.
On returning to school, we then wrote about our visit and even tasted some food which Jewish people eat as part of their Passover celebrations. Naomi had even presented us with her own sketch of the Synagogue which Mrs Cochrane asked us to attempt to copy. It was very difficult but we enjoyed having a go.
Here are some photographs from our day as well as a couple of our recounts.
On Wednesday 8th March it was International Women’s Day. During our lesson we discussed the important roles and campaigning lots of women have carried out through out History. Our homework was to research a famous female who has played an important role in making a difference to the lives of others.
Year 6 – Spring Term
Following our first term in Year 6, we are continuing to work extremely hard towards our SATs tests in May. In addition to our daily English and Maths lessons, we are now receiving extra sessions in these subjects. Some of us have also been receiving booster sessions after school. This term we are also continuing to improve our writing and we spend each session applying our SPAG to longer pieces of text. Here we are using our dictionaries, word lists and thesauri to improve our work.
This term we have also been:
- Preparing for our performance in the Sing Up assembly in March
- Learning about the Jewish religion and the importance of the Synagogue in the Jewish community as preparation for visiting a Synagogue in March
- Constructing electrical circuits in Science
- Studying significant aspects of British History and some of our British Monarchs
- Producing our own art work in the style of William Morris
- Taking part in swimming sessions
Please watch this page for our next photographs of World Book Day, our visit to the synagogue and our performance in the Sing Up assembly.
Thank you to parents and carers who are continuing to support us in our final year.
