Week 4 27.1.20

This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We finished writing our own versions of the story ‘Supertato’.
  • We discussed the features of poetry.
  • We found the rhyming couplets in a given poem and then found our own rhyming words.
  • We focused on the phonic sound ‘e_e’ (theme).



  • We used tens frames to make numbers to twenty.
  • We described each number in relation to ten, using the language ‘ten and … more’.
  • We started to use Base Ten (dienes) to describe numbers in terms of tens and ones.
  • We made numbers to twenty using dienes.



  • It was Art Week! In Kangaroo Class we focused on the artist and sculptor Barbara Hepworth.
  • We found out about her life and looked at the different sculptures she has created.
  • We made necklaces based on the sculpture ‘Spring’. We used clay and focused on creating the same shape and different patterns.
  • We were inspired by Barbara Hepworth to create our own sculptures of Supertato!
  • On Friday Miss Kerr taught us all about a different art skill; tie- dye! We created our own pieces of tie-dyed fabric.


What an exciting Art Week; well done!
