Radical Writing!

We have been having some fun with Writing in Room 11 over the past few weeks. Our focus this term has been to incorporate more interesting and varied vocabulary into our writing. To help us develop the language we use, Miss Chalmers has been providing us with some pretty interesting learning experiences!

Taste Testing Thursdays
Each Thursday until the end of term Room 11 will be taste testing foods with different flavours. So far we have been focusing on "Sweet and Sour". Our first taste test involved Super Sour Jellybeans - most of the children thought they weren't so bad, but they sure made Miss Chalmers' eyes water! A big thank you to Jacob's mum for providing us with our next taste test - big zip lock bags full of lemons, limes and oranges (she even cut them up for us!). Check out the photos below:

Jamie and Ryan are pretty funny! Can you tell which ones were the
lime photos and which one were the oranges?
Here are some of the words we used to describe the different tastes:

Science Experiment Wednesdays
But that's not all! In Room 11 we've just started "Science Experiment Wednesdays" too. Having a quick and exciting experience in the morning means that we are really motivated to write later on in the day. Below is a video of us playing with baking soda and vinegar (we added dish washing detergent to make the reaction even more extreme!). We will try to get some of our science stories up on the blog soon.
