Year 2 visited the Jewish Museum in Manchester and spent the morning looking and handling a range of different sacred artefacts. The children were able to experience what it would be like to be in a Synagogue and had lots of questions to ask our guide. Below is a gallery from the visit so that you can see what the children got up to! In the afternoon the children wrote an information text all about the museum. If you click here you can visit the official website of the museum.
