Year 5 Trip to Colchester Synagogue - Framlingham College

Year 5 had an amazing morning at Colchester Synagogue as part of our study of Judaism in RE. Our pupils were on remarkably good form and thrilled our hosts Linda and Lee by asking and answering on a wide range of subjects.

We were shown around the Synagogue, saw the beautiful Torah scrolls (one of which was over two hundred years old and was brought to Colchester after World War II from the former Czechoslovakia).

The children learnt about the Passover, Chanukah, Rosh Hashanah, prayers, kosher foods, celebrating the Sabbath, trying challah bread, apples dipped in honey and enjoying the thrill of learning how blow the horn of Shofar.

We had a wonderful time and Year 5 were such an absolute credit to the school with their fabulous knowledge and enthusiasm to learn.
