On Monday 5th December, Miss Roberts and Mrs Bain held an assembly all about Hanukkah. We learnt about which religion celebrated this festival and what it was all about.

‘Hanukkah (also known as Chanukah) is the Jewish Festival of Lights and lasts eight days. It usually falls in late November or December. Jews celebrate Hanukkah to commemorate the Miracle of the Oil. The Hebrew word Hanukkah means “dedication”.’

      I agree, Husnain. Respect for all people, religions and differences is possibly the most important British Value. It is important to respect people’s differences whether or not you agree with them. You are fantastic at showing this British Value in school.
