It’s been a very busy start to the new term in Ash class this week as you will see from the pictures in the gallery below. The pictures show some active learning that has been happening this week.
These activities include:

- RE – we dipped apple into honey and made new years wishes when learning about the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah.
- RE – we worked in pairs to make ‘menorah’ candles which are lit during the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.
