Trip to the Cookingbus


Yesterday we went to Lerwick. first we went to the shetland Amenity trust because we were going to do a work shop with Robina about rocks, two men called Paul and Howard that shoed us bugs under the microscopes. we got split up into two groups the little ones went with Robina first witch mean that we would be going with the two men then we got split up into two groups agein I went with Kay we didn’t like some of the bugs because they were very spotty and patchy.  some of them were very beautiful. then we went with the other man  he shoed us the bumble bee  it looked a bit like  a small cuddly teddy  then we looked at a hover fly it had a long nose next we looked at the lace wing it was my favourite one. we went with Robina we remembered about the lava rock and we saw a rock that had a fosil of a piece of seaweed in it Robina shoed us a type of rock called felsite.

we went to the museum with Robena she shoed us  all the rocks and some of the felsite knives that they made for decoration.Magnetite was used for making steel. felsite is a very beautiful rock when it is polished. it was used 5,000 years ago. it was made into display knives. Schist could be carved into things as big as mill stones.Chromite could be ised for making steel. Soteamatite could be used to make dust. Aggreyate was used for making road chips. copperour was used for its copper, it was heated to get the copper out. then we went to the cooking bus it was a big lorry that folds out into a kitchen it was very fun we got shown what to do then we worked in pairs and used flower shakers, pastry, tomatoes, cheese, basil, olives and basil pesto.  we made it into basil and tomato tartlets. We made sunset pasta salad at the end we got some strawberry smothies.
