The children in P5 have been learning about Passover (Pesach in Hebrew), a very important Jewish festival celebrating the flight of the Hebrews from Egypt and their subsequent freedom thanks to Moses (as told in Exodus). An important part of that festival is the symbolic Seder meal, which marks the beginning of Passover. The children have learned the meaning of each of the symbolic ingredients on the Seder plate and on Monday they got to perform a simplified version of the Seder meal and to try out some of the foods on the plate. They had a great time and enjoyed tasting different food, some of which they had never tried before – Matsos (flat bread), horseradish sauce or Charoset (a sweet paste made with honey, apples and spices). Well done to the children in Primary 5!
