Yr5 and Yr6 in the Ghetto

6th October 2014

Students in Years 5 and 6 have recently been enjoying the more modern aspects of Rome's rich history. On Tuesday 23rd September they visited  the historic Jewish ghetto.  

This is a fascinating place, holding an array of tales dating back to its opening in the 16th century. Children learnt about, and searched for, some of the Jewish symbols which can be seen around the ghetto. They discovered some of the history of the division of the Jewish community and how that occurred over the years. The children also hunted for the famous golden memorial stones which hold information about individuals who suffered during the Second World War.
