Miss Smith's Rabbit Twix

We have been learning how to write Descriptions.  Miss Smith brought her rabbit Twix to school for a visit, and we wrote a Description of it.
Here are a few:

I’m going to introduce you to Miss Smith’s rabbit Twix.
Twix is brown and white.
Twix has sharp teeth and a white tummy.
She has black eyes and a pom-pom tail.
Twix eats apples and carrots.
Twix sometimes escapes the house to visit the neighbours and sometimes nibbles on wood.Twix also has a toy ball and likes to chew power cords. I felt excited because Twix is the first rabbit I’ve seen in real life.

On Tuesday  Mrs Smith brought her rabbit Twix to school. Twix’s ears stick up in the air.  She likes nibbling wood.  Twix exercises once per day.  She is a girl. She has a pom-pom tail. Twix is a dwarf. Twix likes cuddles and she is cuddly like a blanket.  She likes chewing powercords. Twix is adventurous. She is scared of heaps of children.  Twix likes visiting the neighbours. Twix is an adult. I like Twix because she is cuddly.

As part of maths week, the Middle Learning Community had a Marshmallow Challenge. We were given spaghetti, string, tape and a marshmellow and we had to create a freestanding structure collaboratively. Some of our structures were more successful than others! Have a look at some of our photos.
