Their task was to work collaboratively to discover how the puzzle pieces fit together and what they could reveal about History. Here are a few photos of our detectives at work and the puzzles they “pieced” together! Like this:Like Loading...

Hanukkah in Year One

Today we had a special visitor, who talked to the children about Hanukkah a traditional Jewish celebration.

They also eat food that is cooked in olive oil as a way of celebrating the miracle of the oil lasting 8 days. Like this:Like Loading...
