Jewish Learning at Alma
Jewish Learning is a cornerstone of education at Alma Primary. Ivrit and Jewish learning permeate all that we do from morning t’fillah (prayers), to understanding the importance of treating others with respect and living up to our school motto: 'A world built on kindness'. We celebrate festivals together and learn about the similarities and differences between Judaism and other faiths.
Classes each have lessons in Jewish learning that link in to the topic that they are learning about as part of their curriculum. Lessons are creative and interactive, including activities which give space for discussion and debate, to ensure that the children are engaged and are intellectually stimulated.
We also take advantage of our outdoor space and where relevant, lessons can take place outside: during the autumn festival of sukkot some of the Jewish learning lessons took place in the Sukkah, a special booth created for the festival.
