While at the museum we completed a workshop that was lead by an ancient Greek character. We planned a Greek myth using the artefacts around the museum. The children hope to use these during lessons back at school to enhance their story writing. The children ensured to memorise all of the information that was discovered over the course of the trip so that when they go back to school they can write information booklets to explain to the other year groups about their visit.

The holiday of Shavuot is a two-day holiday, beginning at sundown of the 5th of Sivan and lasting until nightfall of the 7th of Sivan (May 19–June 21, 2018). In Israel it is a one-day holiday, ending at nightfall of the 6th of Sivan.
What Shavuot Commemorates
The word Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period between Passover and Shavuot.
The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai on Shavuot more than 3,300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot we renew our acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d “re-gives” the Torah.
