Room 21 were so excited that we succeeded in our break out. We had to put our good thinking skills to use to solve riddles and problems to break out of a locked box in 40 minutes.

In Room 21 we have been focusing on persuasive writing and what amazing writers we have!

Broadbean Bonanza

Today Room 21 had our last Enviro Day with Mrs Daniel. We harvested  the broad beans we had grown from seed and sketched them. Next we slid them out of their fuzzy pods and tried them raw. They tasted crunchy and nutty.

After that we cooked them in the microwave and popped them out of their pale shells. Then the beans tasted soft and 'potatoey'. Yum!

We're not going to eat all of our braodbeans. We'll leave some on the stalks and when there are big we'll collect them and save them to grow into new plants next autumn.

We ti

pped the pods and shells into the brand new compost bins, where they will break down and make new food for our other vegetables. How sustainable!
