By Chabad Glen Eira - 27 November 2019

Rosh Hashana – our New Year – is a time of celebration and reflection on the year we’ve had. We love to look back and see how far we’ve come, and all the things we have learnt. Our creche children have grown and learnt so much and its amazing to watch them flourish!

Learning in Creche:

In the lead up to Rosh Hashana, we have been exploring bees and honeycomb and tasting honey. As well we have been discussing, exploring, planting and tasting apples! In art we have made ‘apples trees’ and painted honeycomb effects. As well, the children have enjoyed the many dress ups and glasses in the theme of Rosh Hashana. We have been making our own green and red playdough (representing apples) with glitter inside, and then cut out and created many different Rosh Hashana shapes. We have created an apple dipped in honey game and an apple slot game which we have participated in enthusiastically. And of course, we have also been singing lots of Rosh Hashana songs.




Shofar Factory visit:

The children were able to really gets hands on with the shofars and all the tools used to make them!








Postman Visit:

We had a postman from Australia Post come to visit. The children were so excited for the opportunity to explore her bike (including pressing the ‘horn’!!) as well some children sent Rosh Hashanah letters to their parents.






Hatzolah Visit:

We had Leon Landau from Hatzolah Melbourne  come for a fascinating and exciting visit. The kids were super excited to try out all the equipment and recieve ‘treatment’.







Smile On Seniors:

We had a very special and unique inter generational activity with Smile on Seniors. It was unbelievable to watch the kids and ‘Gran-friends’ interacting together!








Rosh Hashana Community Carnival:

We had so many exciting activities at the carnival – including large jumping castle, bee hive presentation, Apple counting and throw in the basket competition, bee hive & honey presentation, round challa platting, Shofar factory, catching gold goldfish for Tashlich and a whoppa ballon twister and magic show! The kids had a great time!
