Celebrations Celebrating New Year Lesson Plan Aims

- What Passover is and how the Jewish community celebrate this special occasion.
- What a Seder plate is and why it is used in Passover.
This lesson involves:
- Messy Play
- Natural Art Tasks
Every year the Jewish people remember and give thanks when God freed his people from slavery in Egypt, with Moses as their leader. It is called Passover because the people remember how the Angel of Death passed over all the houses which had followed God’s instruction to paint the doorway with the blood of a sacrificed lamb.
A great Muddy Tip is to visit a synagogue local to you or invite a member over to your school to show and explain their faith in a more detailed light and explain what their faith means to them and their family and friends. The Passover Story in 10 Scenes is a great starting point to illustrate the story behind Passover.
There are plenty of opportunities for creative dance in this lesson plan. All of our KS1 Religious Education resources are active methods. Look out for options as to whether you can do it in big indoor spaces or whether it’s better taught outdoors. Remember, you need a silver account at least to gain access.
