Week 9 11.11.19

This week Kangaroo Class have been learning:



  • We began the week by commemorating Armistice Day. We found out about why it is a special date and why we buy poppies.
  • We wrote recounts about what we did during our workshop on Wednesday.
  • We learnt about time openers and adverbs and used these in our writing.



  • We focused on subtraction.
  • We used cubes to take away different amounts.
  • We solved problems by finding the missing number in part- whole models. We used subtraction to help us find the answer.
  • We wrote our own subtraction number sentences.



  • We created pictures of poppies using finger painting.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our workshop where we found out all about Diwali. We painted our own divas (or diyas) and then learnt a special ‘Bollywood’ dance that we performed to Reception.
  • We raised money for Children in Need by decorating our own Pudsey- style cakes!
  • We started practising for our class assembly which we look forward to performing to our families next Wednesday.


Well done on a very busy and exciting week Kangaroos!
