Week 5: 9th Oct 2017

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We planned our own newspaper report about the arrival of Zeraffa Giraffa in Paris.
  • We wrote newspaper articles about Zeraffa Giraffa and included titles, headlines and captions.
  • We ordered the story and used adjectives and story language to plan our own version.
  • We began to write the story of ‘Zeraffa Giraffa’ in our own words.



  • We used a hundred square to answer questions about numbers using mathematical vocabulary.
  • We recalled our number bonds to ten and twenty.
  • We completed the ‘domino challenge’ by adding the dots on dominoes to make different totals.
  • We then added two digit numbers by counting the tens and ones in a variety of numbers.



  • We designed our own African masks using pattern, colour and a range of materials.
  • We decorated pumpkins ready for our Harvest display.
  • We learnt how ‘c’ can make a  ‘s’ sound. We practised writing these words in sentences.


Well done Lions; you have worked hard this week!
