Our Cookie

This week the whole school had to do a writing sample. This was our class experience of eating a cookie. The children had to brainstorm, think and write about what they could see, smell and taste. We've also got photos to show you what we did as well. We will have some of the children retell their stories later.

I saw your school on TV the other night on TVI Close Up Well done Water melon and cookies! School is certainly lots of fun. Hope you all have a great year and thanks for leaving us comments.

Hi Room 10,

Your cookies were making me feel hungry. Your brainstorming what your cookie looked like was very impressive. You came up with some great describing words, to use in your recount writing.

Keep up the great work,

From Miss Paton & Room 3

Hi Room 10
That was a taster for us too - now we have to wait to hear what you clever people wrote about your cookies.
I also saw your class on TVOne on Friday. You looked fabulous. I thought it was funny that they showed Room 10 watching the Pt England News on the New Zealand News!
Well done all of you
Mrs Burt

Wow! You are so lucky to be making cookies for the writing sample. My class got to play on the playground and then wrote about their experiences.

This is a much better topic to write about than stuff I have my students do. (Their prompts are pretty neat, but they aren't about eating cookies.) This is a good idea for writing descriptions. I could also use it for observations in science.

I enjoy watching your movie. I hope you tasted the cookies. Was it nice when you tasted the cookies? What cookies did you like? Did you enjoy it?

Room Ten! Wow! I don't know why I didn't see this video before, I can't have been paying close enough attention! I loved the way that everyone was smelling the Chocolate Chip biscuits, it looked like fun! I also liked the music that went with the video, it made me want to sing along and to dance, although Im not very good at either. Nice to see the students doing such a fun activity that also had the learning intention so clear. Wonderful work again!
