On Thursday it was World Book Day
and we had to bring in our favourite book and a matching item which represents the book. We all had a great time.
This week we have been learning about Jewish people and their houses because next week we are going to a Synagogue. We learned that in Jewish homes there are two kitchens because they can't put milk and meat together. We wrote our own blessings for the classroom and for family and friends. We found out about Shabbat and we learned about Kosher food. We made posters that show Judaism.
In maths we have started to learn our times tables.
In Collective Worship we learned about the 'Big Story' of the bible and we had an ashing service with Reverend Richard.
I am looking forward to going to the Synagogue because I want to see a different type of place of worship.

This week we went to an amazing Synagogue in Singers Hill Birmingham.
We went to the Synagogue and met our tour guide Natalie.
After that Natalie showed us into the big synagogue it was amazing we got to try on some kippahs.
Natalie showed us the Torah Scrolls.
We wrote recounts of our fabulous day.
My favourite bit was Natalie showing us the Torah because I was asking a lot of questions about the Torah because I didn't think it was true that the Torah is as long as a football pitch but it is!

We were thinking about how to describe astronauts and made a rocket ship picture. We added tissue paper for the flames and then we stuck words around the rocket.
And we looked at How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth in Guided Reading, The Sea of Tranquility in English and our class reader

This week we learned about Holy Week and Jesus' crucifixion.
We learned about Palm Sunday, 'Angry Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We started by learning about Palm Sunday and we learned about how Jesus rode a donkey and donkey's have crosses on their back to show this.
On Monday Jesus went to the temple and saw the Pharisees making the temple into a market
place Jesus was furious.
We thought about what he might have done on Tuesday and Wednesday and finished with the Last Supper. At the end of the week the whole school got together to tell the other classes what we had learned.
On Mondays we write about are weekend. we like writing about a weekend.
The best bit was when we made the donkeys because we got to use our feet to paint the donkeys!

This week we did singing practice for the Easter Service and on Thursday we had our Easter Service and it went very well!
Class 2 the Easter Story from Palm Sunday to The Last Supper on Thursday.
On Palm Sunday people shouted Hosanna and waved palm leaves at Jesus who was riding a donkey to Jerusalem.
On Monday Jesus went to the temple and was angry because they were using his father's home as a market place rather than for praying and he flipped over the tables, whacked everything and set the animals free. We called this 'Angry Monday'.
On Tuesday he went to his friend's house and a sinner washed his feet in expensive oil so she could get forgiveness.
The bible doesn't say much about Wednesday but we do know he was arranging for the Last Supper.
On Thursday he had the last supper, he washed the disciples feet because he God's servant. Then he said someone was going to betray him and they all said 'not me' but Judas left the Last Supper. Jesus gave his friends bread and said this is my body and gave them wine saying this is my blood and now we remember him when we eat bread and drink grape juice or wine.
After the Easter service we had a parade in are Easter bonnets and baskets
We made Easter cards that have Bunnies bottoms for our family for Easter.
I liked Singing Practice because I like the songs.
Lydia Year 3
I liked the Easter Service because we got to have separate parts to do of the Easter Story.
Kelsey Year 3
