Kapow! The Germs Are Gone.

Can Room Ten make soap BETTER? We think so.

Our class have had great fun planning and making soap.
We think that you WILL want to use it!

This movie aired on School TV earlier today and shows our designs and how we made them.
We hope you enjoy it. Write us a comment and tell us which soap would make you
wash your hands.

As part of our topic studies we have been thinking about how to make things
Bigger, Better, Faster and Stronger.

To help is learn the technology process before we make our soap better so children would want to use it, we decided to practice the process on something else.

We chose Beyblades!

All By Herself

Several times during the year we have independent writing tests to see how good we are getting at writing. Here is Khaia's wonderful story which she wrote without the support of the teacher.
Hasn't she done well!

Lets Make Paper Planes!

To help us learn about the technology process and to help inspire us for our writing test, Room Ten has made paper planes. Each team chose a plane from the website and then tested them to see which plane flew the best.

Check it out!

"Brr it's Cold "said Paris!

Paris has also written a successful introduction to her story about getting to school on a cold and foggy morning.

Remember to be successful she needed to:

*Start with a hook - Can you hear her hook at the start of her story?
* Use clever words to describe
* Tell the reader Who? What? Where? When? Why?

Foggy Morning by Louis

Room Ten have been working on writing a successful introduction to our story.
To be successful Louis had to do the following:

*Start with a hook to get the reader interested
* Use clever words to describe
* Tell the reader who?, what?, where?, when?, why? and how?

We think Louis has written a brilliant introduction about what it was like one foggy morning.
