This week Mr Kagan’s Year 7 Jewish Studies class had a virtual lesson together with a school in Cape Town, South Africa.
Preparations began a few days in advance, with questions prepared to try and work out the location of the ‘mystery class’. Everyone was very excited to meet with students of a similar age from across the other side of the world.
When both classes actually met online, via Zoom, they were able to ask each other questions about their respective countries and to discuss similarities in their Jewish knowledge and lessons. It was a great opportunity to meet students from another country, in the comfort of their own classroom.
Mr Kagan aims to link up with other classes in the future.
