Year 3





Manchester Jewish Museum

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Manchester Jewish Museum. They spent some time in the synagogue and the museum looking at artefacts and learning about Jewish festivals and family life, before making their own Challah bread. Their behaviour was excellent throughout the visit. Well done, Year 3!
