Crazy Biscuit Faces

The Tuis group are getting much better at writing sentences. Have a read of their sentences below, they are all about our Crazy Biscuit Faces.

Miss Walters did silly faces to us! She was poking tongues at us. I thought that we were going to do silly faces to.
First Miss Walters gave me a biscuit. Then I put on the icing sugar with a spoon.
I made the eyes and nose with M and M's. I got the snake lolly and put it on my funny biscuit. I ate the left overs.

Crazy Biscuit Faces

Look at what fun we got up to yesterday! For writing yesterday Miss Walters came up with this cool (& yummy) idea. She was a bit mean though as she wouldn't let us eat our Crazy Biscuit Faces until we had completed our recount.

We would love you to leave us a comment or even ask us a question and we will do our best to answer it.

blind Food Tasting


We had to use our noses and tastebuds to try and guess what food we were eating because we had blindfolds on. Below are some of our best sentences.

I was so scared to taste the food. I asked myself what are we going to taste?
Makalita

Then I saw the vomit bucket on the table. I felt nervous.

Dante

I saw a sign that said ‘Blind Taste Testing’. I was wondered what it meant.
Mary

It was our first time having a blind taste test it was a great experience.
Osana


We waited patiently for the food. I was getting ready for some tasting.
Jesiah

Then I ate the second food sample and I said “It’s YUCK!” Dillon

I tasted the first one it kind of made me sick and I almost vomited, it tasted sour.
Heather I felt great and so did my tastebuds, they really had an adventure! Vivienne

What are we doing for writing today?

Can you guess what we might be doing? Check out these photos for some clues.


Stay tuned for some of our 'gem' sentences to go with these photos.

Making Tea

The Moreporks group read a story called Tea's Made. It was about the dad getting a Tea Machine for his birthday. We have all heard of coffee machines but not a machine that makes tea! However it did get us thinking - How do you make a good cup of tea?


Check out our movie and maybe you can follow our instructions to make your mum or dad a cup of tea when it is their birthday or just because you love them!

Do you think our instructions are clear and easy to follow? Let us know what you think.

Immersion Assembly


Our Immersion Assembly Recount is all done ready for you to read. We each wrote a different part and then put it together to make 1 recount.


On Monday the 12th of October, we came back to school for term 4. When the bell rang we lined up outside and walked to the hall in single file.


Then we could smell a familiar summer smell, it was a BBQ full of sausages! We also heard the song ‘Celebration’ playing and we started to sing along. Mr Burt and his BBQ boys were cooking the sausages and chicken wings for those who sat up nicely. Mr Burt also talked about our topic for this term, it was called ‘Let’s Celebrate! Food Glorious Food!’


We waited for some action to happen. Team one were up first, they pretended that they were from The Rock Café. Each of them were all wearing matching outfits and aprons. Next was Mrs She who showed us her Chinese dress and Ms Glaze showed us her cool chef pants. They could undo really fast in case they caught on fire. Then Team 3 came up, they were dressed as Mexicans and Miss Walters was holding a piñata, it looked like heaps of fun! Miss Walters and Miss MacKinlay were hitting the piñata so hard that it broke and lollies spilled out everywhere. The last team to come up was team 4. They wore outfits from around the world and talked about food from that country.


At the end we headed off to class, that was such an exciting way to start off the term. We can’t wait to learn about all the different kinds of celebrations.

Birthday Balloons!

The Tuis group were reading about Birthday Balloons which fits in perfectly with our 'Celebration' topic!


What we would like to know is what your favourite birthday party food is?

Let's Celebrate!

The name of our topic this term is called 'Let's Celebrate! Food Glorious Food!'
It was so exciting to see all the action in assembly on Monday. All the teachers were dressed up in outfits from different cultures and some even had food to share with us. Once the fun was over we started to wonder - What does the word 'celebration' mean?

How many celebrations or festivals do you know? Check out our next movie to be posted and see if you got any the same as us.
