What happens during Shabbat?

As part of the RE curriculum, Year 2 pupils have been considering why Shabbat is an important time of the week for Jewish people. Here are some of their responses.



On Friday, everyone is always busy, getting the shopping done, buying the Challah bread and putting the special bread on the Challah board.


They put the Kiddush cups on the table for the wine to be poured into the Kiddush cup for after the special prayer.


On a Sunday all the Jewish people have a rest day like God did.


Shabbat is a special time. Everyone says special prayers.


Some candlesticks are put on the table for the blessing then everyone takes a piece of bread. There is some left for Saturday and Sunday. Everyone says prayers to God. They sing songs. Shabbat is so peaceful. Everyone enjoys Shabbat.
