We are all very proud of Alex, he has been awarded a Special Showcase for his writing on Night Zookeeper.
Well done Alex. This is his story. (The prompt was, ‘how could something so tiny make so much noise.)
The Noisy Piglets
Hi my name is Sam I work on a farm in county cork and this is a story about my farm. One bright spring morning I was ploughing the field so I could sow the seeds and I stopped to have a break. While drinking warm milk I saw a mammy pig having six small pink piglets. Putting my milk down I walked slowly and quietly over to see them. The piglets made so much noise how could something so tiny make so much noise I wondered. Many months later they grew up and they had piglets but it is still a mystery how they can make so much noise.
I have connected with these two teachers who also take part in the 100 word challenge. The children in these classes would love to have comments from you.
They will also be commenting on our writing too. Our class page is https://edu.nightzookeeper.com/night-news/55f90cf671efbe030099a05f

Ww started Food Dudes in school today.
Over four different days we will taste one fruit and one vegetable. Today it was grapes and carrots.
Most people ate all of them, even teacher!
Anybody who ate them, or at least made an effort to try them, received a prize. Today we got a lovely pencil.
We have been working hard on our writing this week. You can see our entries on the Night Zookeeper site. We’d love some comments and suggestions on our stories.
This week’s prompt is the word ‘Red’.

We put some milk into a wide bowl. We added some drops of food colouring, red, blue, green and yellow. We then dropped a blob of washing up liquid into the middle of the milk.
You can see in the picture what happened. The colours swirl and mix in the milk. This is because the washing up liquid breaks up the fats in the milk causing the colours to swirl.
This is why washing up liquid is so good and cleaning dirty dishes!
We had to try and solve a tricky puzzle. We had to pick 5 groups of coloured cubes and place them on a grid. No column or row could have 2 colours the same. It was very tricky. But Karim managed to solve it.
We made Rice Krispie Buns. Delicious!
