This half term, as part of the Jewish module, Year 8 have been studying Anti-Semitism. As an example of Anti-Semitism, we have spent three lessons looking at the suffering of the Jews during the Holocaust. We used the Windermere Children case study. As a focus, we explored how Jews became ashamed of their religion as a result of their experiences.
The year 8s were given the project of creating a Holocaust Memorial for Jewish people. They had to use their knowledge of the Jewish religion, combined with their knowledge of the Holocaust to make a suitable memorial which would help them feel proud of their religion. Their teachers were blown away with the careful thought and design which were put into their creations. We have some very talented, aspiring architects!
