Week 4: 2nd Oct 2017

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We looked at the features of formal letters.
  • We took part in a debate; sharing our opinions on whether animals should be left to live in their natural environment.
  • We wrote letters to the Great Pasha of Egypt to persuade him to share our opinions.
  • We began to look at the features of newspaper reports and plan our own story.



  • We focused on subtraction and using a variety of methods to help us solve subtraction problems.
  • We used dienes to subtract ten from a given number.
  • We explained how we could bridge 10 using dienes to subtract.



  • We made and decorated food chains to show which animals rely on each other for food.
  • We conducted our own research into Africa and found out many interesting and exciting facts to share with our friends and teachers!
  • We learnt how ‘a’ can make an ‘or’ sound after ‘ll’. We practised writing these words in sentences.


Well done Lions on a fantastic week of learning!
