Spring Term 2019
Our topic this term is 'Explorers'.
Happy New Year from Class 2!
We started the new year by thinking about the season of winter. We painted pictures of snowdrops.
We made alliterative sentences about the winter. Alliteration is when you use the same sound in almost all the words in a sentence.
Chilly Charles chases cheeky children.
Weird William wants winter.
Snowmen slide down slippery sliding slides.
Silent Steve slips and slides.
We then wrote metaphors about winter. A metaphor is when we describe something as something else.
We've also been doing DT. We have been making boats. We started by finding out about different boats, then we tested if materials floated or sank. After that we designed our boats and wrote a letter to our mummies to daddies asking for stuff to make our boats. We then made our boats
and had fun testing them on the pond to see if they would float and hold 30 unifix cubes.
My favourite thing is maths because it is really good and you get to know numbers.

World Book Day and World Maths Day
As part of World Book Day we brought in our favourite books and then wrote our own stories based on Man on Mars (A Day in the Life of Bob)
We planned and wrote our own stories about the aliens in the book.
We are all very proud of our stories!
The whole school also wrote a story Class 1 wrote the beginning, Class 2 wrote the middle and Class 3 wrote the ending. We didn't find out what the other classes had written until the end of the day when Mrs Price read it to us.
For our maths day the whole school used the book How Big is a Million. Class 2 looked at the number 100.
We created a huddle of 100 penguins, carried out 100 square investigations, used 100 pennies and created a bunch of flowers with 100 petals. We had lots of fun.
Our trip to the Synagogue
On Tuesday 12th March Class 2 went to Singers Hill Synagogue in Birmingham.
We had a brilliant time and really enjoyed meeting Geoff and learning all about the Jewish faith and their place of worship.
Here are some picture of when we went to the Synagogue.
The next day we wrote a letter to Geoff to thank him for showing us around the Synagogue.
Church Lench C E First School
13th March 2019
We are happily writing to you because we want to give a big THANK YOU to you for showing us all around your Synagogue and for having us.
We enjoyed seeing all the different parts of the Synagogue, especially the windows, the Torah Scrolls and meeting you! We liked how you let us try things that we don’t normally try on like the hats and the shawls. We also liked when you made jokes about us, especially the naughty boys!
We learned lots from you and now we know loads about the Jewish religion that we didn’t know before. We loved the beautiful building, the marble floor and the royal colours to show God you love him. It was mind blowing to see how passionate you were about your Synagogue and how important it is to you and your family.
Once again, thank you very much for all your kindness, time and care.
Love from your friends
P.S. I hope we were respectful and you liked having us and enjoyed the day too!
