Year 2 Undergraduates who have been studying Judaism this semester took their knowledge and skills into school for two days recently.
Lathom High School held a two day conference for their Year 10 pupils. On the first day Staff from the school were joined by RE undergraduates from Edge Hill as the whole year was taken off timetable to work in small groups to study the religion. Staff from the school were grateful for the help of the students and commented very favourably on the way they were able to work with pupils who they had not met before.
This groupwork was to prepare pupils for the highlight of day 2 – when Edge Hill trainees helped to supervise the Year 10s as they met firstly David Arnold and then Jack Aizenberg – a survivor of the holocaust.
This was an excellent opportunity for the students of Edge Hill to put their Jewish Studies into perspective, gain more experience of working with a diverse range of Key Stage 4 pupils and to hear Jack’s story.
