Lions have been working hard this week changing their instructions. We came up with our own class one ‘how to trap a lion’. They had some brilliant ideas for their own writing and I’m looking forward to reading them when they publish next week. In maths we have been looking at place value, Lions are becoming very confident with this and I’m handing out lots of challenges for them to try.
We have started the reading challenge this week-racing against the other classes and so far we are coming 3rd. Every time someone reads in our class it is counted towards the final total – our lion race car moves along the race track for every 100 reads! The children that read 5 times at home also have their name put up on our dragon in the window. Come on Lions, we need to win!

This week Lion class have been busy changing the class text, I have really enjoyed hearing all their ideas and the final pieces are great! I’ve been really impressed with how hard Lion class have worked and how they have taken so much pride in their writing.
In maths this week we’ve have started to look at adding numbers together, lots of challenges going out again this week!
We also had a topic day where the children visited each classroom and discovered how people lived in the Stone Age. Lion class came back with lots of information and were really enthusiastic- we had a woolly mammoth in our room!
We are now second on the race track for reading and we are the class that read the most this week – Well done Lions!
This week Lion class have been busy designing what they are going to make in their topic. Some have been researching housing in the Stone Age and have designed their own Stone Age house. Others have been designing their own weapons, cave paintings and clothes. Next week they will be making them.
Lion’s have been amazing with their home reading so much so that they in the lead on the Mario Kart race track!

This week in maths we have concluded our work on shape until we revisit it in the summer term. I was really impressed with how quickly the children learnt the different names for triangles and types of lines.
In English we created our own horrid character as a class. His name is Stinky McStinkyface. The children used their knowledge of Mr Twit to help them create the character.
