Yesterday came the culmination of our work on the Passover with the Passover meal itself, celebrated by Y6 children and invited guests. It was an enjoyable event, and helped the pupils understand the significance of the Last Supper/First Mass. We ate traditional Passover foods including unleavened bread, roast lamb, haroset, bitter herbs, hard-boiled eggs and parsely dipped in salty water. We dripped the required ten drops of wine on our plates to remember the ten plagues of Egypt. An old Hebrew custom tells us that if anyone were to drip eleven drops accidentally, then one of the plagues of Egypt would befall that person. There could well be a lot of dying cattle in Wallsend over the next few weeks, as well as a few swarms of locusts.
