This week we have been doing an experiment based on Skittles using our five senses Touch, Taste,Hear,Sight and Smell. We placed the Skittles in a bowl filled with warm water and watched them dissolve. When that was done we got to write about the Skittles.

Here is my writing:

Miss D pulled the Skittles bag as hard as she could. It was like a turtle trying to get out of his shell. She put the Skittles on a white plastic plate, some on one side and some on the other side. Then she poured on warm water. The colours started to bleed out into the water like a lava stream going super slow as a snail. We didn't try to taste those yummy, juicy Skittles but I bet you that they tasted good as a bee getting the pollen out of a sunflower.

Using ideas from our senses to write Show not Tell sentences.

Kia ora.
We are learning how to add description to our writing by including ideas from our senses and creating Show not Tell sentences. We made popcorn in class and got to hear, smell, touch, see and taste it.

The Popcorn

Pop, pop! The popcorn was jumping like a bunny running for his life. Everyone was going wild because they were hungry for the buttery, hot treat . Mrs B took the bag outside and ripped as hard as she could. We were so impatient we were like a wolf howling until its heart broke.

The bursting hot crumbs were going down my throat.The hot butter sizzling  through my teeth.Ouch, ouch! The heat was burning my tongue like a meat patty on the BBQ.

The old kingdom

Kia ora
This is an activity we did when we were learning how to use five scene into our writing.
Next time I think I could improve on is put more meat and gu into my writing
Ka Kite ano

The Old Kingdom.

The white snow is surrounding the old kingdom. The long trees are waving from side to side in the cold wind. The olden doors squeak when people push them. I smell the slimy fish swimming down the river.

Scientific writing

Kia ora

We are learning how to read and write scientific reports. We have been doing experiments and writing about them. This is a reading activity we did. We had to be able to match a title for a report with a wondering question.

Freezing Water.
What will happen when you mix vinegar and baking soda?
Floating and Sinking.
What will happen to an ice cube if you take it out of the freezer?
Kitchen Chemistry.
Which materials make the best insulators?
Disappearing Water.
What happens when you put a container of water into a freezer?
Keep Your Cool.
What will happen to a puddle of water on a hot day?
Ice Cube Experiment.
