This week Lion Class have been learning:
- We have focused on the story ‘Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’ by John Steptoe.
- After ordering the story, we used adjectives to describe the forest setting.
- We looked at the use of speech marks in the text and used them to write our own speech.
- For Roald Dahl Day on Wednesday, we invented our own magical sweet and had ideas ranging from ‘Fizzy Delights’ to ‘Exciting Explosion!'
- We have continued to look at ordering and comparing numbers using ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’.
- We have used dienes to partition numbers into tens and ones.
- We then used this knowledge to solve partitioning problems by splitting numbers in different ways.
- Finally, we discovered patterns by finding out what happens when we add ten to any number.
- We thoroughly enjoyed Roald Dahl Day; designing our own inventive sweets and their packaging and sharing our costumes with the rest of the school!
- We learnt about African clothing and the use of ‘Kente’ patterns.
- We created an African piece of artwork by using African repeating patterns and weaving.
Well done Lions on an excellent start to the term!
