Week 2: 18th Sept 2017

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We have focused on the story ‘Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters’ by John Steptoe.
  • We planned our own traditional tales with a clear beginning, middle and end.
  • We described the characters and settings of our stories using lots of amazing adjectives!
  • We wrote our own traditional tales.



  • We have been learning about length.
  • We have measured a variety of objects and lines using centimetres and metres.
  • We compared the lengths of different objects using ‘longer than’ and ‘shorter than’.
  • We solved problems involving length by measuring items in the classroom.



  • We enjoyed a house competition afternoon where we played benchball in our houses. We all won different games and had great fun competing!
  • We created our own bookmarks to show how we follow the school rules.
  • We learnt about African rhythms and chants.


Well done Lions on a brilliant week!
