Calder Class Timetable
We have been studying Ancient Greeks in history this half term. In art, we therefore made our own Ancient Greek vase using paper Mache and acrylic paint.
This half term in Science, we have been studying the topic 'animals including humans'. We have learnt all about the digestive system and our teeth. We have learnt all the different functions. We made our own models of teeth using marshmellows and moulded them into the correct shape, it was very fun!
This week it was our turn to look after the chickens. We collected the eggs each day and then made our own chocolate brownies. They were delicious!
Calder have had a very exciting literacy lesson today! Mr Willy Wonka wrote a letter to our class, asking us to make a new recipe with his Wonka bars for the Oompa Loompa's to make. We made our own chocolate cornflake bun and then wrote instructions for the Oompa Loompa's to follow.
Calder have had a very exciting day at our Halloween disco! This morning, we successfully carved our own pumpkins and did lots of fun Halloween activities. In the afternoon, we watched some Halloween films while eating our party food.
