Celebrating Hanukkah

This week we are learning about celebrations. We’ve discovered that some of our celebrations are the same as others in our class and some are different. After we read a story about Hanukkah (which NONE of us celebrate), we tried potato pancakes. Almost all of the students gave them a thumbs up.


Later, we Skyped with Ms Lirenman’s class in Surrey who taught us a lot about Hanukkah, including the dreidel.


They lit a menorah for us to see. We wondered why the candle flame looked like this. Do you know?
