Our class Train Trip By Mina

On Wednesday 2nd September we, our class, went to Sylvia Park Mall.
We went to the Panmure railway station to catch the train. We bought our ticket from the counter there.The people who work there was so nice to us. We had a little fun going down along the escalator.Then we got into the train it was a quick ride.  

We walked around the mall but did not buy anything. My favourite shop was the Japanese supermarket. After a few hours we got into the train to come back to school.

I used the machine to buy the return ticket. 

We went to the BK to eat our lunch. It was so fun and I learned lots of things.

Making Candyfloss in the class By Mina

On Friday last week we made candyfloss. We made this in our class. The first thing we did was, taking the machine out of the box. Then we added a full spoon of sugar. After that, we have to wait a very long time. Then we saw spider webs coming out of the machine. We rolled a stick inside the machine to collect the candyfloss. It was really fun to make it and it was so yummy.
