Week 7: 30th Oct 2017

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We found out about the Gunpowder Plot and wrote information leaflets about why and how we celebrate Bonfire Night.
  • We ordered the events of the Gunpowder Plot and wrote sentences to describe each stage.
  • We thought about how to edit a story or piece of writing and used the story of ‘Battle Bunny’ to edit and write our own version.
  • We wrote poems about fireworks using onomatopoeia and metaphors.



  • We enjoyed Numicon Week!
  • We found out about the different used of Numicon and described the different shapes and numbers.
  • We added three single digit numbers using Numicon.
  • We solved missing number problems and used Numicon to check our answers.



  • We looked at portrait-landscape pictures and created our own versions in the style of Henri Rousseau.
  • We began our new topic of ‘Fire’ and thought about what we would like to find out.


Well done on a busy first week back!
