Investigating Fungi

WALT: write a recount about a science experiment

On a Tuesday Mrs Wallace told us that for reading we were going to be reading a book called “Investigating Fungi” so then Mrs Wallace red it to us and after she did we told us that we were going outside to find some fungi.

Firstly we set off for the school forest, we arrived and we scattered all over the forest but sadly we did not find any fungi in the forest. So we raced to the path by the school pool and struggled to find any, then we found some in a tree and it was jelly fungi room 17 all were so amazed.

Secondly all of room 17 split up into little groups and searched all around the school and the group that I was in raced for the backfield, and we found a couple of gill fungi and I found some more jelly fungi on a piece of dying  wood. Then we meet up with Mrs Wallace’s group and they took some photo’s of me holding the piece of wood and then we went back to class.

Finally on Friday room 17 made some bread using a breadmaker in class and we used yeast, flour,salt,sugar,water and oil. Later on in the day the bread was made we put butter and creamy blue cheese on it I didn’t really like the cheese that much but I loved the bread and the reason we made bread was because yeast comes from fungi I think and the creamy blue cheese has molds like fungi I think and that was our science experiment.

I Think We Should Have Passion Week Because...

Hi my name is Daniel and I am here to convince you that we should have passion week.

Firstly, I think we should have passion week because  it is fun to learn a new skill and learn something new. We can  actually do something that we enjoy and we can do something with our friends in different classes if they have things in common.

Secondly, we should get to pick more passion’s  because it gets a little, no really boring, when you’re only doing one  passion. If you have to finish a project you can just go back when you rotate back to that passion.  

Thirdly, we are actually doing maths, reading and writing in some of our passion’s.  But on the other hand, some of us like doing those subjects with our normal teacher.  So this takes me to my conclusion.             

In conclusion, I think we should have passion week at least 3 times a week because some of us still want to be with our normal teachers and we still want a little fun sometimes.
