Week 2 14.1.19

This week Giraffe Class have been learning:



  • We continued to look at the story ‘Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’ by John Steptoe.
  • We retold the story in our own words, using story language and expanded noun phrases.
  • We planned our own traditional tales based on the story.
  • We wrote and edited our own traditional tales with a clear beginning, middle and end.



  • We looked at pictograms and interpreted the data that they show.
  • We continued to focus on multiplication and using arrays to show our working.
  • We solved a variety of maths problems involving addition and multiplication.



  • We looked at the work of Angu Walters, an African artist.
  • We created our own art work in the style of Angu Walters, using different shapes and patterns.
  • We discussed and thought about different places that are special to us and the reasons why.


What an exciting week of learning Giraffes; well done!


Next week we are researching and writing our own reports comparing South Africa to the UK. We are also continuing to look at multiplication in maths.
