Week 10 18.3.19

This week Giraffe Class have been learning:



  • We started to look at the story ‘Grandpa’s Garden’ by Stella Fry.
  • We ordered and retold the story by describing what had happened in each of the four seasons.
  • We used similes and metaphors to describe the weather.
  • We practised using suffixes in our sentences.



  • We continued to look at fractions.
  • We understood the term ‘three quarters’.
  • We found three quarters of shapes and amounts .
  • We used a speaking frame to help us solve fraction problems.



  • We enjoyed our first visit to our school allotment and thought about what we would like to try and grow.
  • We designed our allotment space and thought about which vegetables would grow in which season.
  • We made chick hats ready for our Spring Assembly and for Easter.
  • We were thoroughly excited to find out about St Patrick’ Day with help from Mrs Morton and enjoyed playing potato games and eating soda bread!
  • We started looking at the work of Henri Rousseau.


What a busy week Giraffes; well done!


Next week we will write our own descriptive stories based on ‘Grandpa’s Garden’.  We will begin to look at time in maths.
