Mr Gumpy’s Outing
Each Peach Pear Plum
The children in Zai’s class engaged in activities to mark the week long Jewish holiday of Sukkot. They built and decorated their own shelter (sukkah) and decorated it. They also enjoyed baking traditional etrog cakes and making a model shelter. The children built a sukkah (shelter) for remembering the event of Sukkot (Jews living in the wilderness for 40 years). They also made a model of one. The decorations were to decorate the sukkah. The cakes are etrog cakes (using a lemon in place of citrus like fruit called etrog) which was used commonly in the week long holiday of Sukkot.
