This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We started our new topic; ‘Our Local Area’
  • We thought about what we would like to learn and wrote our own questions.
  • For World Book Day, we focused on the stories by Julia Donaldson.
  • We looked at the story of ‘The snail and the whale’ and wrote conversations that the characters may have.
  • We compared the settings in different stories.



  • We started to look at different forms of measurement.
  • We compared the length and height of different objects, using the vocabulary ‘shorter’ and ‘longer’
  • We used scales to compare the weight/mass of a variety of objects.
  • We wrote sentences to describe different measures.



  • We started to look at the Victorian way of life.
  • We labelled the different parts of a Victorian house.
  • We looked at the artist Adrian Berg and wrote facts about his style and life.
  • We looked at floating and sinking, and investigated which materials would float or sink.
  • We designed and made our own 3D settings!


What a fantastic week of learning Kangaroos!
