This week the Chief Rabbi visited the school for the official opening. He arrived very early in the morning. He arrived for 7:30 with his security people. The Chief Rabbi then took prayers with about 20 other men from the two shuls Giffnock and Newton Mearns . All the men did prayers then there was a breakfast and the Chief Rabbi gave a little speech.
At 9 all the children came into the hall all the and did prayers together and the Chief Rabbi made another speech.
After that we all made are way to our classrooms. The Chief Rabbi then attended then schools official opening ceremony. The choir also sang at the ceremony.
P4 and P5 were very lucky that the Chief Rabbi came to watch some of our Kodesh lesson with Mrs Rosenberg. Then just before lunch the Chief Rabbi and Rabbi Rubin in front of the whole school went outside put up the front door mezuzah .
We have also been busy in class this week. We have been continuing our work on ‘Thinking Reader Strategies’ and working on identifying different question types. We have also been learning how to show direct speech in our writing and how to write paragraphs. In art today we have been continuing with our grid drawings and it is starting to pay off as some of our drawings are becoming very detailed and accurate.
