This week we have been practising our newly learnt map reading skills. We followed a key and map of the school to find hidden letters which spelled out a secret word! We all really enjoyed exploring and the activity has shown us the importance of an accurate key and map. Well done Calder Class for another super week!

As part of our focus on art this half term we have been studying and comparing artists which use pencils and pens to create close up art work. We looked at Paul Lung and Brian Scott and discussed the similarities and differences between the works.  The children enjoyed seeing the amazing artwork that could be created simply through the use of a humble pencil. We were all really inspired and have begun to see the value of taking our time to create our best work.

We have been celebrating all things books this week! We have been reading and writing twisted fairy tales this half term as part of our ‘Once upon a time’ topic. Mrs Stones and I have been so impressed with the knowledge and understanding of a range of traditional tales and the imagination the children have had for how these could be changed to create a humorous or alternative story. Everyone made a super effort with their costumes as well and it was a joy to see the children reading with year 5, exploring and enjoying reading together.

This week we have been exploring our new topic– Once Upon a Time. We have been reading Hilary Robinson’s book ‘Mixed up Fairy tales' and thinking about how traditional tales follow a pattern, but it brings humour when we play around with different ideas. We have changed the adjectives that describe our main character and this has led to lots of discussion about where this will lead our writing.

We have had a lot of fun making our fruit skewers this week. We designed our skewers last week, thinking carefully about which fruits to choose. Then we made tally charts to work out how many of each fruit Miss Watling would need to buy. We enjoyed asking each other questions and did really well at recording them accurately on our tally charts. Next we wrote instructions for how to make the skewers. Then we made the skewers and they were delicious!  Finally, we evaluated our creations and thought about what we would do differently next time.

Calder Class have had a big week this week! We have been busy preparing for and then delivering our class assembly and learning party. We were all very excited, with a few nerves, but managed to deliver a super assembly. We remembered all our words and we spoke really clearly. We had fun doing farm activities in the classroom after and some parents even managed to stay! We enjoyed reading all the lovely comments from parents afterwards. Thank you from Calder Class!

What a super start to the new term! Calder Class have enjoyed exploring ‘what a wonderful world’ we live in through our learning about farms and the produce they provide us with. We have been practising our cooking skills by making ‘rainbow omelette cakes’ using healthy ingredients. Next, we will be thinking about which foods are healthy and appropriate to take on a picnic.

This week in Calder Class we have been working on our story Elf Road. We have been thinking about the emotions of the main character and how his feelings change as the story goes on. We acted out the story and showed the change in emotions through our drama. We then made emotions charts to track how he changed from the beginning until the end.
