Week 5 5.2.18

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We compared two authors; Michael Rosen and Julia Donaldson.
  • We read the story ‘A squash and a squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson and identified features of the language used.
  • We described the similarities and differences between the two authors and their writing.
  • We planned and wrote our own rhyming stories.



  • We looked at the relationship between multiplication and division.
  • We found the inverse of different multiplication number sentences.
  • We used inverse to check and explain our answers.
  • We solved a variety of problems by using division as the opposite of multiplication.



  • We found out about Shrove Tuesday and were excited to make and eat our own pancakes!
  • We wrote about what animals need to survive and the differences between carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.
  • We enjoyed our class celebration on Friday; a craft afternoon, film and popcorn!


What an excellent end to the half term Lions!
