Ashhurst Trip

                                    Herb Farm 
Hey look we're here I said. "Yay!" Hone replied. Bang, the door slammed shut. "Let's go!" I yelled. Hey, how come there are no herbs here I wondered? We followed Miss Hulme. "Hey William, come sit next to me." I whispered. Why is there lavender on the table we thought. "I think we are making some cream," I said to William. We listened to Jess. 10 minutes later our cream was finished. This looks so cool! "What colour is yours William?" "Peach," he said. We said thank you to Jess.

Magic play dough


 Magic play dough
                   Squish it squeeze it you will do,
                           Now you see red or blue.
                           
                                              If you wish for some food,
You will always be in a happy mood.
                

  If you see red or blue  
your wish has came true.
   
    

                 Don’t get excited you will have to believe,
and you might get what you need.

Last Friday our teacher read us a poem about play dough.
Then our teacher gave the class a ball of play dough each. We squeezed it until it changed into a colour. After that we had to write a poem about magic play dough. Here is mine.

Holidays


Vroom Vroom I go flying past on my motorbike splashing through giant puddles. I need to be a bit more careful around these big puddles because if I go too fast I will go right in one and get stuck.

Cooking at Rutherford

Every Wednesday we go to Rutherford. We walk down there in the morning. One thing I learnt is not to pull the knife towards yourself when you are cutting the potatoes because you can cut yourself like I did.  Some of the easy parts about cooking was putting the potatoes in the oven and cooking them and turning on the oven.  The most difficult part was peeling the potatoes because they have different shapes and curves in them. My favourite part was eating the mashed potato, it was really good.  

How to boil and mash potato. 

Ingredients Equipment
2 - 4 Potatoes Potato peeler
1 tsp Salt Pot and lid
Water Stove
15g Butter Knife
Little Milk Chopping board
Potato masher

Instructions

  1. Peel the potatoes.
  2. Cut the potatoes into quarters (or smaller if the potato is large)
  3. Put the potatoes into the pot.
  4. Cover the potatoes with water and add the salt
  5. Place the lid on the pot.
  6. Turn the element on to high.
  7. Wait for it to come to the boil and then turn it down to simmer.
  8. Cook for about 15 minutes or when they are soft when you poke a knife into them.
  9. Drain water out of the pot.
  10. If you want to serve them boiled then place the potatoes on a plate.
  11. If you want to eat them mashed then add the butter and milk then mash with a potato masher until there are no lumps and it looks smooth.

Prove it 24

L.I. Can I support my ideas with detail?

Ms O Conner is our Principal her hair is short dark brown and curly. Everyday she put on colourful clothes to make her look pretty.  I always see her where sparkly jewellery that shines in the sun. She's got really wrinkly skin. Our principal also wears big rimmed glasses that help her see.

Ms O'Connor helps us by hiring helpful teachers and  helps us by having lots of rules to keep us safe. So have fun at school. I like that she had a really good idea to have a boy's classroom. Also she encourages us to go on camp to.

Ms O'Connor's Job is being a principal at Carlton school. She likes to do computer work in her spare time. I like the way she looks after the school and the community. I see her zooming to school and home on her yellow bike.

L.I. Can I use alliterations?

Yesterday I was riding my big bad bike on my friendly friends farmWe went for a really long bike ride all over the farm. It was really fun. I went through some stinky smelly sheep poo.
After we got back from over the back of the farm we had to get washed up. Next we jumped on the big blue tramp. "Come" said my friends mum "Lets have some tasty tea". Then we went to our big blue bed and slept.
