Week 3 6.5.19

This week Giraffe Class have been learning:



  • We drew and wrote story maps showing the story of ‘The Jungle Book’.
  • We described the animals that Mowgli met in the jungle.
  • We practised our reading comprehension skills.



  • We looked at fractions and found halves, quarters and thirds of amounts.
  • We solved a variety of problems involving fractions.
  • We reminded ourselves of the strategies we would use to add, subtract, multiply and divide.



  • We updated our seed diaries by observing and recording how our sunflowers had started to grow.
  • We designed plant pots for our sunflower seeds using recycled materials.
  • We started to look at pop art and the artist Andy Warhol.
  • We drew our own self-portraits and used watercolour pencils to colour them.


Giraffes have worked extremely hard this week; well done!


Next week we will begin to look at the story of ‘Aladdin’ and we will retell the story in our own words. We will continue to practise solving a variety of problems in maths.
