On Wednesday, some year 6 girls participated in the summer term Maccabi football tournament. We were in group three and played Hertsmere A, Kerem A, Naima B, Independent B and Beit Shvidler A. We were very pleased with our results: two wins, two draws and one loss. This put us second in our group, but we didn’t quite do enough to qualify to the quarter finals.
Our team did very well, we only conceded two goals and we scored three. We all (Adela, Maia, Elisheva, Ellie, Jasmine, Rachel and our spectator, Erin) really enjoyed the experience and are sad that our football tournaments are finished in our time at Morasha.

On Tuesday the second of May, it was Yom Ha’Atzmaut and we did special activities. Some of the special activities were Israeli dancing, making keyrings with GIFT, writing poems about Israel, making collages of pictures of Israel and for some years, making t-shirts or cupcakes. Of course, ending with the big highlight of everyone’s Yom Ha’Atzmaut, the talent show!
The talent show is when all students get to show their talent – about Yom Ha’Atzmaut in a variety of ways. Some of these varieties include animations, singing, drawing or playing an instrument. Not only that, but we had delicious lunch to match. We had Israeli salad with falafel and a side of chips. It was an amazing lunch for an amazing day. We are very thankful to Mr Kett and Mrs Gross for this special day!

On Sunday 23rd April, we took part in a Triathlon at Royal Russel School sponsored by Human Race. We swam four lengths; we cycled 100 metres and ran 750 metres. The Triathlon was for a charity called Restless Development which supports children in need. The teams involved four competitors and thankfully, we all managed to cross the finish line.
Olivia from team ROME, involving Elisheva, Yehuda and Ari said: “We all thought this was a great and fun way to support the restless development as we all joined in with fundraising and participating!”
Maya from team STAMINA, involving Jasmine, Shani and Rafael said: “We all had a great day participating as we all became happier and healthier!”
Erin and Ellie from team BMW4 involving Jonah and Aron B said: “Human race have done a great job with organising a children’s triathlon because it helps them become healthier, fitter and progress their team work!”
Thank you to the organisers of this enjoyable Triathlon. We all had great fun, even if we didn’t win….It’s not always about winning, it’s about participating!!!

On Sunday 23rd April, we participated in a Yom HaShoah commemoration ceremony at Barnet Copthall Rugby Stadium. Lots of important people were there, such as Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and His Excellency Mark Regev, Ambassador of Israel.
The theme of the ceremony this year was women’s resistance. This was so important to us personally, as we both have family members including grandmothers and great grandmothers, who survived the Shoah as a result of their bravery and courage.
We enjoyed singing ‘Never Again’ composed and conducted by Stephen Melzack (Mrs Melzack’s husband), as well as singing with Mr Kett – who was part of the Male Voice Choirs (even though he forgot his choir folder!).
There was also a candle lighting ceremony in which our very own Mr Richman, joined by his son Levi, took part in lighting for a family member Claire Richman.
We sung on stage with Clore Tikva, Independent Jewish Day School, Mathilda Marks Kennedy, North West London Jewish Day School, Rosh Pinah and Wohl Ilford JPS.
We had so much fun but most of all it was amazing to be part of a very moving ceremony and it was an incredible experience.

I’m not a huge fan of Italian food (or what Americans like to think of as Italian food at any rate). But I do like Italian desserts, including tiramisu, which is why even though I tried this a few years ago, I went ahead and bought the Tiramisu Kit Kat mini when I had the chance. I was a little afraid that it was going to be a repackaged version of the Café Au Lait or Milk Coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Tiramisu Kit Kat actually tastes a lot like tiramisu. Hats off to you Nestle!
The Tiramisu Kit Kat has 69 calories and is made with white chocolate. It smells like coffee and it tastes like it too. But the coffee isn’t overpowering, just as it isn’t in a good tiramisu. The bitterness of the coffee balances very nicely with the sweetness of the white chocolate. There are hints of vanilla and cinnamon in the mix as well. The only thing lacking is that it’s impossible in a Kit Kat to capture the texture of tiramisu, which is really just as important as the flavour in my opinion. That aside, I will say that this is a fantastic tasting Kit Kat. I would definitely try this one again and encourage you to pick them up if you can still find them.
