This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We began to look at the story ‘The Jolly Postman’ by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.
  • We ordered the events of the story and discussed the different fairy tales.
  • We designed our own cottages and labelled them with our imaginative ideas of how to decorate them!
  • We wrote shopping lists to describe what we would need.



  • We looked at positional and directional language.
  • We practised making whole, half and quarter turns by playing ‘Simon Says’.
  • We described the position of different objects in relation to others.
  • We used ordinal numbers to order people and numbers.



  • We practised and sang songs based on ‘The Jolly Postman’ with Ms Caperon.
  • We created sequences of movement by performing a variety of jumps.
  • We decorated biscuits based on the cottage in ‘Hansel and Gretel’
