Wow, term 1 has come to an end already! We've had so much fun in our new class and enjoyed doing so many new things like baseball and circle time. Even though we won't be in the classroom for the next 2 weeks, keep coming back to our blog as we'll still be posting on our blog. As one term ends, another one will soon begin so stay tuned as we will have a new topic and more exciting things to share with you.

Taste Testing


Guess what! For our writing experience this week we all became taste testers. Miss Walters had organised some food for us.


Have you ever been a taste tester before? Well I have. This week on Monday Miss Walters told us we were going to become taste testers.


I was surprised when Miss Walters brought out the first plate. We had to smell the food then taste ti. I thought it was Maple Syrup and I was correct. It was delicious when I finally got to sample a taste of the food.


Our second plate had a blob of vegemite on it. I thought it smelt like coco and when I tasted it, it was yuck. My group guessed right because we had some good taste testers.


The last sample of the day was mild salsa. When I saw it, smelt it and lastly tasted it I thought it was chilli sauce. Out group was wrong but so was everyone else.


I really enjoyed the experience because I love tasting new food. The worst part was when I tasted the vegemite. I hope Miss Walters thinks of another experience soon.
