During the Autumn Term, Dragon Class explore the story of Passover as part of learning about the Jewish celebration. As part of our learning, the children created their own Sedar Plates for the Sedar meal which is eaten as part of the celebration. Each part of the meal represents a different part of the story.
Beitzah (an egg) represents the holiday offering brought in the days of the Holy Temple.
Zeroah (a shank bone) represents the lamb that was sacrificed the night before the escape from slavery (the Exodus).
Maror (horseradish root) represents the suffering and bitterness of the lives of slaves in Egypt.
Karpas (a small slice of onion, boiled potato or sprigs of parsley) represents the salty tears cried by the slaves.
Charoset (a mixture of apples, nuts and wine) represents the mortar and brick made by the Jews when they worked for Pharaoh.
Chazeret (lettuce) represents the bitterness of slavery.
Here are just some pictures of the children with their completed plates.
