Popcorn Poems

We have all written popcorn poems. We have also made popcorn pictures on Kid Pix. This is what we have to show so far.

Listen to our voice thread to hear our ideas about what makes popcorn pop. We talked about this before we watched a Suzy's World DVD and popped some popcorn ourselves.
We did enjoy eating the popcorn afterwards. Thank you Mrs Parris for lending us your popcorn machine.
We have written explanations of why popcorn pops and now we have read the poems we wrote on this voice thread. We hope you enjoy listening to them.

We love vegetables

Here are our still life vegetable pictures.
We looked at the work of other artists.
We looked at photos of vegetables. We noticed that some of the vegetables were partly hidden behind other vegetables.
Some of the vegetables had been cut so you could see inside.
We used pastels and created our own pictures.
Some of us used pastels in different ways to create different effects.
We hope you enjoy looking at them.

Our Healthy Breakfast

Today Room 2 had a morning of a healthy breakfast. We all had a great morning. Do you know what we had? We had weet-bix and porridge and a little bit of brown sugar. by Tenaija
We also could have stewed apple or peaches and we could put a little sprinkle of cinnamon on the top if we wanted.
The last picture is our brainstorm of ideas for words to describe the taste of the food we ate today. Ms Donnell recorded for us using the mimio.
We have each made our own menu recording our ideas for a healthy breakfast.

The Food Pyramid

Today we learnt about different food groups using this food pyramid interactive site.
Connor's question last week was: Why do you need to eat healthy food. We found some answers here.
