Week 3 16.9.19

This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We focused on the traditional tale of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’
  • We sequenced the events of the story and described the beginning, middle and end.
  • We drew story maps to show what happened in the story.
  • We wrote sentences to describe why we would like to be Jack or the giant.



  • We started to look at number and subitising.
  • We looked at different dice patterns and how we knew what each represented.
  • We described the similarities and differences between different amounts of objects.
  • We drew different ways to make a variety of numbers.
  • We used tens frames to show each number.



  • We thoroughly enjoyed a trip to our school allotment on Wednesday, where we planted bulbs and looked at the progress of the planting we had carried out last year.
  • We practised our throwing and catching skills.
  • We created art based around Jack and the Beanstalk using photos of ourselves as inspiration!
  • We labelled the different parts of a plant.


What a very busy week of learning; well done Kangaroos!
