Week 8 18.6.18

This week Lion Class have been learning:



  • We looked at the story ‘James and the Giant Peach’ by Roald Dahl.
  • We used descriptive language to describe the main characters in the story.
  • We invented our own ‘little green things’ and used our imagination to describe how we would find them and use their magical powers!
  • We debated and wrote letters to give our opinions on whether James should or should not journey into the peach.



  • We continued to focus on time.
  • We practised telling the time in five minute intervals and using ‘clockwise’ and ‘anticlockwise’ to describe the position of the hands.
  • We solved problems involving time.



  • We made insects using pipe cleaners inspired by the characters in ‘James and the Giant Peach’.
  • We created our own pop art inspired by Andy Warhol!


Well done Lions; you have worked hard this week!
