Cooking for the Harvest Festival

Room 11 harvested carrots and pumpkins from their class garden.  One group made pumpkin scones, another group made pumpkin pie and the last group made carrot cake and carrot cake muffins.  Watch the video to see how much fun we had making everything.

We also froze the carrot cake muffins and pumpkin scones for the harvest festival in a few weeks.

My Special Place

My Special Place

My special place is nice and calm.  It is quiet and has a very wavy sea blue carpet in it.  It has a big television with noisy screaming speakers.  It also has a grey and white animal which walks on all four legs.  I enjoy playing on a boring black screen which lights up when you turn it on.  There is also a big box crowded with wires which also helps light up the screen.  My special place makes me feel happy and comfortable.

My Special Place

My special place looks like a bomb site.  Its covered with blankets and pillows. In my special place I like to sleep and dream my happy dreams.  My special place makes me feel safe and comfortable.  I also feel warm.  My special place is so unique that I couldn’t live without it.

My Special Place

My special place has beautiful sunflower and swan plants growing in it.  Around the swan plants are some colourful butterflies and hungry crawling caterpillars.  Beside my special place is a huge pumpkin.
I like playing under the sunflowers shadows or sketching their lovely petals.  It feels so relaxing.  When I sit around that area I feel pretty and warm.  I love that area because of all the nature and creatures.  I wish it was just for me.

My Special Place

My special place has green and red stripes connecting together that slips you up.  Outside my special place has a kayak and a diving board with high steps.  It feels like I’m in the sea because there are waves.  My special place makes me feel like I’m in heaven.

Our Class Family Tree

Room 11 created a family tree using our hands.  In the shape of our hands, we wrote the names of people and animals that make up our family.  We put our hand pictures together to make a giant class tree.  We hope you like it.
