Week 8 4.3.19

This week Giraffe Class have been learning:



  • We looked at our special story for Book Week ‘When I grow up’ by Tim Minchin.
  • We created freeze-frames of the different settings in the story and then described them using adjectives and expanded noun phrases.
  • We wrote books about all the things we would like to do when we have grown up.
  • We planned and wrote about our perfect day.



  • We solved a variety of maths problems involving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
  • We completed a World Book Day maths challenge by finding the secret codes in different maths questions!
  • We started to look at fractions by finding halves, quarters and thirds of numbers.



  • We enjoyed making a variety of beach and sea objects and creatures ready for ‘Book at Bedtime’!
  • We found out about the different parts of a plant and what they need to help them to grow.
  • Our six gymnasts took part in a local gymnastics competition and were FANTASTIC! Well done!


What a wonderful Book Week Giraffes!


Next week we will begin our new topic of ‘Plants’ and we will continue to look at fractions in maths.
