My Kitchen Rules Kid Style begins...

We are learning about the different flavours we can create with foods.

We made milkshakes and tried different flavouring. We all liked different flavours... chocolate, raspberry, vanilla but no one liked lemon best.

We were super lucky to get a whole lot of helpful parents to help us cook biscuits. We made different flavours.

All the teachers wanted some biscuits
because they smelt sooooo good.

We all know the most important thing is the taste. Just ask those judges on My Kitchen Rules.

So how did our biscuits taste?????

Animal Mix-ups

My animal has spots like a leopard and colourful spikes and a beak to eat worms. It has sharp teeth to eat meat. It can also breathe and swim under water because he has a tail with a little hole. It has alien feet and he has a rhino horn. When you feel him he is sqaushy. It lives in the sea and it can walk on the bottom of the sea. Around its eyes it has blue. All over it has gold like a sun, a bright red sun. My animal has bow feet. It helps him to stay on the ground. it has a rhino horn to help it scare other animals away but sometimes it is annoying.

My creature has human shoes, crocodile mouth, zebra stripes, dragon wings and porcupine back. It drinks the deep blue. It eats little sea creatures. The spikes they look like fish scales. the wings help him get away from land enemies. You can see through the wings. It walks like us.

my animal has sharp poisonous spikes so it can't get hurt by other creatures or people. It has two rhino nose spikes to charge at something that is going to hurt it or a tree to get something to eat like an apple or an orange. It lives in a cave. A very dark cave. It has two hippoe ears to hear something coming. Its mouth has sharp teeth so it can't get hurt or bitten. It has black and orange to show off its body and it has green and silver. the green is so it can't get hurt. the silver is so people think it is a rhino.

My creature has a long swirly tongue so it can catchflies and leaves. it lives under water and it swims very fast. he can jump very far like a grasshopper. It can reach really high. It has a yellow neck, green legs, a blue back, brown patches and a orange yellow and red tongue. he has a black fluffy tail. He lives in the tropical lands.
Can you guess which one is my animal?

More capacity

Room 5 have loved learning about capacity.
We had a few challenges to achieve:
                                                     *To make a container that holds 2 oranges to sell in the supermarket
                                                      *To see how many grocery items we can fit in a box
                                                      *To guess and check how much juice an orange will make
                                                      *To make a container to hold 20 jelly beans
 What will happen if you
tip your container over?
Amy-Rose went to problem-solve.
Kanye has been problem-solving to make
his box for oranges.

Keighan thought out side
the square and made a
container where oranges
sat on top of each other.

David guessed almost how much orange juice
he would squeeze out of his orange.
David cutting his orange to check how  much
juice is inside.

Lots of us put the orange next to the cup and guessed it would fill the cup to how tall the orange was.
This was good thinking as we have used that strategy to guess before. Once we opened the orange we saw how much skin and other bits were in the orange. It wasn't only juice.
Diaz wanted to keep squeezing to get more
orange juice. He figured out he only got a little
more juice- not a full cup.

Shontae is enjoying her juice.

When are you using capacity in your holidays?
