Week 1 7.1.19

This week Giraffe Class have been learning:



  • We began to look at the story ‘Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’ by John Steptoe.
  • We predicted what could happen next at different points of the story.
  • We described the setting of the story.
  • We compared the story to other traditional tales from other countries.



  • We discussed the importance of information tables and how they are used.
  • We created our own tally and bar charts to find out our favourite colours.
  • We interpreted the data and explained our findings.
  • We sorted shapes using Caroll diagrams.



  • We enjoyed writing about the favourite parts of our holidays.
  • We started our new topic all about Africa!
  • We found out about the different habitats animals live in and how they survive in that habitat.
  • We identified the continents of the world and located each using maps and atlases.


Well done Giraffes; what an excellent first week back!


Next week we are writing our own versions of a traditional tale and continuing to look at different charts and graphs in maths.
