Rooms 2 and 2a went to the staffroom on Friday 19th March to experiment with technology as we made jelly!
Everyone sat quietly and participated in the discussions. We held the jelly packets, looked on them for all the information we could find, and discussed what the text on the boxes told us.
Is this Mr Young’s chair I am sitting on?
Look at the picture on my jelly box!
Mrs de Koning drew our attention to all the information on the box we had found.
We shared with our friends all the equipment and ingredients we needed to successfully make our jelly.
What does this word say? Lets spell it together – J E L L Y !
Even before we read the words the box gives us lots of information.
The back of the box is important too!
Thanks Mrs B for bringing us the grapes and gummy bears to put into our jelly. Guess which sank and which floated!.
Everyone got a very small amount of jelly crystals on the palm of their hands. We looked at them, felt them with a dry finger tip and then licked our finger and tasted the tiny, crunchy, sweet granules.
This is sweet and a tiny bit sour.
Oh, it is sticking to my tongue. Is my tongue green now?
I don’t want to drop any of the jelly granules.
Look at the jelly crystals, tiny, yellow, powdery and dry.
We had to be very careful when Mrs de Koning had added the hot water. Do you know why the water had to be hot? Why did we stir the jelly for a long time? How did the jelly look different as we added the water and then stirred?
Next we put the jelly into clear plastic cups and added the yummy treats – grapes and gummy bears.
Lined up on the bench we see everyone’s jelly cups.
Laila and Georgina choose the treats to put into their jelly.
Imogen is happy with her green jelly, it smells so good and she can’t wait to eat it!
George likes his dessert treat.
This is the best part! Oh no….that will be eating them.
After our cups were filled we had to decide how we could best help the jelly to set. The cups went onto trays and then into the fridge to cool and set.
We all said the jelly poem…… “Jelly on a plate, jelly on a plate, wibble – wobble, wibble-wobble, jelly on a plate!”
