Gru enters the room, the door slams shut. He is frustrated. The kids were jumping around on the beds. Gru sighs "Let me smell, let me smell". Agnus hadn't brushed her teeth yet. She did a mighty breath and she had bad breath. The children were laughing.

Edith leaps on Grus face and Gru tumbles to the ground. He grabs her legs. Gru said to her " Put on your PJ's ". Edith said" But we are not tired". Gru replied " But I am tired". Gru is frustrated. Agnus asked " Can you read us a bedtime story?"

Sean Investigates

Seans Writing Test

I reached inside the mysterious black box, it felt like an alien’s brain. Miss Burne was a visiting astronaut and I was the expert scientist. I had to use my super duper extra brain to see what was in the mysterious black box. I had to investigate what was in there.

When I reached into the mysterious black box it was squishy and lumpy like alien’s eyeballs. I felt so anxious. It smelt so bad like an alien’s gut. Then I took my hands out and the alien’s blood was stuck together on my hand.

Film Festival Speakers

Khaia and Collin made Room Ten so proud when they introduced our film infront of a huge audience at Sylvia Park.

Elizabeth Becomes An Expert Scientist

Elizabeths Writing Test

Excitedly I reached into the mysterious black box. Miss Burne talked to us. She said to use our imaginations. Miss Burne came back with two mysterious black boxes. I was the expert scientist. Miss Burne was a visiting astronaut. I put my hand into the first box. It felt like alien’s eyeballs.

Then I felt the other mysterious black box. It felt like alien’s food. I said “yuck”. It felt uncomfortable.

I felt anxious, I felt scared too. We were in the imaginations room. It felt disgusting, mushy and lumpy.

The astronaut Miss Burne opened the mysterious black boxes. Inside there was food. It was a bad day.

Friday, November 11, 2011

Ronn Writes About Alien's

When I put my hand inside the mysterious back box I felt scared because it felt slimy and bumpy things were in the box. Miss Burne told us to use our imaginations, that Miss Burne was a visiting astronaut and I was the expert scientist in the science lab.

I put my hand in the box, I was nervous. I felt mushy things in the mysterious black box. I think it was alien’s brain.

When I put my hand in the next mysterious black box I felt something sharp. I think it is an aliens skull.

Alien's Eyeballs?

Ashley's Writing Test

When I reached into the mysterious black box I felt nervous. Miss Burne told us to use our imaginations. She was an astronaut from out of space.

In the first black mysterious box it was slimy, squishy and bumpy. It felt like an alien’s bones.
The second box felt like an alien’s eyeballs.

Miss Burne opened the box and she revealed the contents. The first box she opened was red, inside it was jelly. The second box she opened was green inside it was egg shells, twisted wire and it smelled yuck. We had fun. There was green food colouring and I felt happy when I had my turn.

Marilyns End Of The Year Test

Marilyn recently had her end of year writing test. She is very proud of her story which she wrote all by herself. Miss Burne has typed it for the blog with no changes from the original.
Well done Marilyn, it is a wonderful story you should be proud.

Nervously Room Ten had to use our imaginations. We had to pretend that Miss Burne was a visiting astronaut. We were an expert scientist. Miss Burne said to used our imaginations and pretend that the classroom was a science lab.

Suddenly it was my turn. I had to find out what was in the mysterious black box. I reached inside the black box. I moved my fingers around. It felt mushy like an alien's brain. As I reached out my hand I said “Ewe'' . It was all red like blood.

Next we had to feel in the second black box. I put my hand inside. It felt sharp at the edge. “It’s slimy”. I lifted up my hand it was green.

It was time to find out what was in the mysterious black box. Inside the first one was beans. It was made from cracker, pasta and red food colouring. In the other black box was made from yello egg, egg shell, yoke of the egg and green food colouring. Was it really something from an alien?

Taunese's Writing Test

Taunese shares her end of the year writing test.

As I reached my hand into the mysterious black box it was slimy. Then I moved my hands around the mysterious box. Miss Burne told us to use our imaginations, she was a visiting astronaut. I was pretending to be an expert scientist. We had to discover what was in the mysterious box.
(typed by teacher as written in test by Taunese)

To inspire us for writing Room Ten have been pretending to be statues.
First we did some research on Google and looked at images of statues.
Next we searched You Tube and watched some amazing human statues in action. Miss Burne then asked to think about the qualities of both kinds of statues and then we played musical statues and tried to be as still as some of the statues we had seen.

Here is a short movie of our game of musical statues. Do you think we are a still as a statue?

We are busy writing our stories this week so keep checking our blog to see and hear what we wrote.

Ronn was the videographer for this movie. I am sure you agree he has done an amazing job filming our writing experience.

Writing Instructions

Room Ten have been learning how to write instructions. We imagined that an Alien has visited Room Ten from out of space to learn how we make, do and operate things.

We have been instructing our alien to make, do and operate many things. This short movie and piece of writing shows how we instructed our alien to make Fairy Bread which is sometimes served at childrens birthday parties. See if you can follow our instructions and make Fairy Bread too.

How to make magical fairy bread

How to make fairybread

  • bread

During our emersion week we did a lot of cool things to find out more about soap. One of which was we did an experiment to see if we could see how soap cleaned things. How does it work?

We had two containers both with oil and water in.
Then we added food colouring to both containers (we use different colours to see the difference).
In one container add some soap.
Stir both and see what happens.
The container with the soap mixes with the oil. The container without the soap does not mix with the oil because oil and water does not mix!! But soap cleans and mixes with the oil. AMAZING.

Watch ou movie and see how our experiment went.

Ashley writes about Assembly

Today Room Ten went to assembly and Miss Burne was a crazy scientist because she had wacky hair. She looked funny. Miss Lavakula was in it too. She had black curly hair and she had a light brown band on her head. She was singing a song to us and Marilyn and I were clapping for Team Three.

Then it was Team Four. They were cleaning. Mr Marks had big long arms and the others had washing stuff .

Team Five was next. Team five was my favourite bit. I liked that Mrs Nua was sitting down on the chair the they put water on her hair. Then they put the pegs on her hair and tried to dry her hair. They got a leaf blower to dry her hair. It was so funnt. I liked all of the teams but team one was the best because they handed food out sandwiches, carrots, cucumbers and popcorn. I got some popcorm from Miss Wild. I like the pretend fruit on their necklaces.
