Week 5 3.2.20

This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We read the story ‘Traction Man is Here’ by Mini Grey.
  • We acted out our favourite part of the story.
  • We described our favourite part and why we liked it.
  • We wrote setting descriptions using as many adjectives as we could!



  • We focused on doubles and halves.
  • We used Cuisenaire to find half of different amounts and represent each as one of two equal parts.
  • We found half of different numbers.
  • We played ‘Bingo Doubles’ to practise finding doubles of a variety of numbers to ten.



  • We enjoyed our last session of Relax Kids and focused on being brave.
  • We started to look at pop art and the work of Roy Lichtenstein. We investigated which tools would be best to make dot patterns.
  • We were given a challenge to make Traction Man a waterproof outfit and planned a scientific investigation to find out which material would be best to use.


What an exciting week of learning; well done!
