Go to the website below and watch the first video. newsround/29363650




As you learnt in the video, Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish celebration of new year. 


When do you celebrate new year? 

What does a new year mean to you?

What do people think about at new year? 


Have you ever made a new year's resolution? 

What was it?


During Rosh Hashanah, people will ask themselves questions like:

  • What is the most important thing in my life?
  • What are the most meaningful and important things I have achieved in the last year?
  • What do I hope to achieve over the coming year?



Write your own answers to these questions about when you celebrate the start of a new year.
