Beliefs and practice (Key Stage 1)
Students could make a class book or display comparing ordinary daily activities with those of Yom Kippur.
The Yom Kippur timeline gives an outline of the different parts of the day and when they occur. If possible, invite a representative from the local Jewish community into the school to talk about activities on this and other Jewish holy days.
Yom Kippur (Key Stage 1)
Describe the events of Yom Kippur through the experience of a Jewish child. Discuss how Yom Kippur is special and separate from ordinary routines. Students could make New Year cards.
Festivals and beliefs (Key Stage 3)
Students could then imagine they are reporters for a local newspaper writing a piece on Jewish New Year covering what happens and why. The Jewish New Year writing frame could be used to support this activity.
