RE- Jesus was Jewish. What can we learn about the Jewish faith?
You can create a poster, fact sheet or booklet all about Judaism.
Maths- Create a multiplication game that we can use in class. You can use times tables facts up to 12x12. Be as creative as you like and remember to include the instructions.
Science- Investigate! Can a solid dissolve in water? Make predictions and carry out an investigation to find out. You may want to record your results in a table, take photographs or create labelled diagrams. Some solids you may want to use- sugar, salt, sand, chalk, coffee, cheese, raisins and pepper. It would be great to see some scientific vocabulary being used with an understanding of what they mean.
Please read every day and ask an adult to sign your red diary.
Remember to put a token on the class reading chart for every time you have read.
If you read 25 times this half term you will be entered into the reading challenge and may win some Saves.

Jesus the teacher
In Religious Education children will be exploring the topic 'Jesus the teacher’. This topic will develop children’s understanding of how Jesus was born a Jew, the story of the presentation of Jesus in the Temple and how Jesus came to show us the way to live. Children will learn how Jesus travelled about teaching people parables and to think about why he did this.
Last Week: We thought the Beatitudes which are eight blessings recounted by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew.
This week: We will be continuing with our work on the Beatitudes to create a class display. We will upload a photo of our work soon!
Each week a pair of children will work together to plan and lead collective worship for the class.
