Scrumptious Comets

“Please make a circle” Miss Garden had said elegantly. Today Room 17 and Room 16 were going to make Comets. (Well not the real ones) The Ingredients that we were going to use, to make them was; Ice Cream, for the main big Ice Rock, Biscuits to mash up into chunks , Ice Cream cones also, and last but not least the Chocolate decorations as well as Hundreds and Thousands sprinkles. As I was waiting impatiently in line, my fingers were extremely eager to touch the fresh from the fridge ice cream. There were two flavours. Vanilla and Chocolate. I obviously chose chocolate.

Did you know that Comets are made out of Ice and dust, kind of like a dirty snow ball. Did you also know that Comets can orbit the Solar System for at least 200 years, which is astonishing.

The way we were going to make our Comets was that we would get a nice round circle of Ice Cream, which would be the main body of the Comet. Then the biscuits would be for the bits of rock that are stuck inside and outside of a Comet. And the sprinkles would be for the dust that usually comes off of Comets. The cone, well that was for the tail.

As soon as I had got my massive chunk of Ice Cream, I sprinted as fast as I could outside to where they were making the most mess I have ever seen. Outside they were putting the mashed biscuits mixed with sprinkles on to our Ice Cram. Making it look as dusty as real Comet looks like. The mess outside was horrifying, because the dust (sprinkles and biscuits) were dropping everywhere in our Courtyard.

Phew, a sigh of relief covered my face. I had finished my beautiful Comet. To top it off after we were tossing it around with dust, we had to place the main body onto it’s tail, the cone. It looked superb and tasted superb as well.
Everything went very well, except for the mess that Mr Sommerville had made with both classes outside. Over all, everything was very good.

  1. Hi Makerita,

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed reading my favourites poem. Thanks once again. Anyways, What a lovely post this is. I wish my class would make something like this. Your writing made it sound so scrumptious and delicous. I could clearly tell you had an amazing time making those ice-cream comets.

    Yours Sincerely,
