On the first day of term room 9 went to see Bedazzled at the museum. We saw convex, concave and plane mirrors.

We sat in a circle and looked at a plane mirror and a spoon. When we looked in the spoon we looked big headed and when we turned the spoon over we were upside down.

Then we looked at the mirror exhibition we saw some rotting jelly beans that looked like you could get them. We reached out to get them and our hands went straight through them, it was an illusion. There was a mirror that made you look liked you stretched. There also was a mirror that made you look like you are smaller.

This sounds really cool I wish that I was there. It sounds like you had lots of fun in front of the mirrors and the jelly beans sound as if they were magic and were trying to trick you guys.

Hi room 9, I'm kendra

I love your blog. There are some really cool stories on it. i especially liked the one about when you went to the place with all the mirrors. Your technical language is really great. What does concave mean, though? Why did you go to the exhibition in the first place?
I'm really looking forward to hearing a reply. See you and keep writing your cool stories!
