our visit to shibden hall!!

copley on: Calder

we looked at different areas of Tudor life during our visit to Shibden Hall.  We looked at Tudor toys and had a go at playing with some such as the cup and ball.  We looked at the fashion of the Tudor times focusing the 4 main materials they used. We even got to dress up in Tudor clothes!!  Afterwards we had a look around the hall at the Tudor rooms.  The bedrooms had huge beds with curtains round for warmth and privacy, the maid used a warming pan to warm the bed before the occupants got in!!  The kitchen had a large fireplace used to cook meat.  They used the fat from the meat to put into moulds to make candles!  Nothing was wasted!!

Another week gone by! Calder Class have been hard at work junk modelling the human digestive system.  They even managed to get a bead from one end to the other. Hooray! They really thought for themselves and showed excellent teamwork.  Well done Calder!

Next week we start investigating the Amazing Aztecs and in Science we will investigate solids, liquids and gas.

In Calder this week we have been making dream catchers and tepees as part of our work on the Native Americans.  We have written some amazing Native American stories too.  In Maths we have started to look at angles and how to measure them with a protractor. 

Science this week has been about teeth and we have seen some grotty teeth in our slideshows! In Topic work we have been thinking about how and why people explore in both the past and present.

Next week, we will be investigating the Arctic and Antarctic and doing a teeth experiment with eggs!
