Download this 19-slide PowerPoint about the Jewish festival of ‘Rosh Hashanah’ to use in an assembly, or RE lesson.  This is a useful PowerPoint for KS1 or KS2 as it explains that Rosh Hashanah means ‘Head of the Year’ in Hebrew and it explains that Rosh Hashanah takes place during the seventh Hebrew month of Tishrei and highlights the customs and prayers that happen during this ten day period before Yom Kippur. Show the children pictures of special food eaten and the shofar (a horn) which is sounded at the end of prayers.  The PowerPoint includes hyperlinks so children can safely carry out their own research – and can even listen to the sound of the shofar!  A great resource to use to celebrate the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah!
