The children in class 6 have been reading and listening to the folk tale of ' How the Elephant Got Its' Trunk' by Jane Langford. This links to our project 'Around the world in 80 days' where we have been learning about the countries that Phileas Fogg visited on his journey. We listened to the beginning of the story and we decided how we thought the elephant got its trunk.

We have continued with the story of 'Around the world in 80 days' where a man travels around the world visiting different countries. This week we have enjoyed learning about Italy; the food they eat, where it is in the world, what the flag looks like, the map and famous landmarks that are in Italy.


Our maths this week has focused on column subtraction but we have recapped on column addition.

To link with our topic of 'Around the world in 80 days' we followed instructions to make an Indian biryani. We enjoyed making the biryani and we enjoyed tasting it.
