  • We planned and wrote reports about Paddington’s home country of Peru.
  • We practised editing and improving our own writing.



  • We used our knowledge of ten to add three numbers together.
  • We found out about even and odd numbers.
  • We challenged ourselves to discover different ways to add even and odd numbers!
  • We found out the meaning of the term ‘finding the difference’ and used this to solve number problems.



  • We used computers and books to research the country of Peru.
  • We designed our own ‘Great Fire of London houses’ and found out about what materials were used to build houses in 1666.
  • We enjoyed a special Game On afternoon where we played a variety of games.
