Hanukkah started on Wednesday 27th November and it lasts for 8 days. Hanukkah is a Jewish celebration where special food is eaten and presents and cards are exchanged.
We have begun to learn about Hanukkah and we enjoyed learning to put the candles in the Hanukkah, working from right to left. The candle in the middle is called the Shamash and this is the candle used to light the others.
We also enjoyed eating doughnuts and playing a game with the dreidals. Watch this space for more information on our Hanukkah celebrations!
