Student Blogging Challenge Week 5 – Food Waste

Would you like to reduce food waste?

Alternatives to reduce food waste include:

  • Make a new food creation
  • Compost, make a worm farm or feed the chickens
  • Have it as a meal the next day
  • Freeze it
  • Donate your surplus food to a food charity
  • When shopping make sure you stick to your list!


Do you like cooking?

Try using your leftover food to make something new.

What do you do with your leftover food?

Try placing food scraps in the:

– compost bin
– worm farm
– feed to chickens

This helps prevent terrible gas omissions damaging the environment.

Why not freeze it?

Place old, soft, soggy and surplus fruit, veg and herbs in the freezer. Then simply add it to smoothies and muffins at a later stage.

Are you tired of having sandwiches each day?

Place your leftover dinner in a jar or container and enjoy the next day.

Find a local charity that helps collect surplus food to donate.

What is ugly fruit and veg?

Ugly fruit and vegetables are delicious produce that tastes exactly the same as other fruit and veg, it just looks a bit different!

Visiting Other Peoples Blogs!

Visiting other bloggers, blogs was really interesting and provided me with a new perspective on blogging. It inspired me to always give things a go. I really value the way that many bloggers are creative and unique! It is amazing how we can interact with each other from all over the world and unite.

I value how many blogs had unique layouts. A layout that caught my eye, was a colourful template designed to look like a spiral back notebook. 

I was surprised how unique everyones designs, layouts and colours  were. I now realise that everyone has there own interesting, creative and intriguing perspective on blogging

I recommend these amazing blogs:
Elizabeth from USA –
Olivia from New Zealand –

Commenting on other people’s posts

Comment 2: 5/5

I value the way this comment stays on topic and gives the Mrs Davis a greater understanding by asking questions. It has great punctuation and the comment is based on an important topic. To improve Mrs Davis’ learning the comment should provide more feedback to help Mrs Davis.

Comment 5: 4/5

I think this comment is great and has excellent punctuation. I think that Tom could have added more paragraphs and given some feedback to the writer to help improve their writing.

Comment 8: 3/5

I value the way Dianne has asked questions so Paul has a deeper understanding of his learning. Like many other comments, I think Dianne should give more feedback to help improve his learning.

Comment 3: 2/5

I think this comment should have some feedback to help improve Elliot’s learning. I believe that Hannah could put the book titles in quotation marks.

Comment 1: 0/5

This comment is unhelpful, I believe that good feedback does not include slang, stays on the right topic, has proper punctuation and provides helpful feedback to help the writer improve their work.

Comment 7: 0/5

This comment has only one line of writing . This is not telling the creator how to improve their learning. It doesn’t have a ‘Dear… or a From…’ This comment should have more constructive feedback.

Comment 4: 0/5

I think this comment should have clearer punctuation, spelling and correct English. This comment should have a greeting/introduction (Dear …) I am wondering what the comment is about?

Comment 6: 0/5

Like many other comments, this comment has lots of slang and incorrect punctuation. It is unkind that Shanny is writing mean things about her sister.

Creating my Avatar

Challenges I had whilst making my avatar:

  • Every time I clicked on a new hairstyles, accessories or clothing it took a really long time to load. At first I kept trying to reload the page and internet but in the end I just had to be patient.
  • It was also a little bit annoying that you could only access certain designs if you didn’t have an account.

200 Word Writing Challenge

Standing frozen in the line next to the other contestants, I glared at the examiners though they swiftly walked along the isle ignoring me, resting on the chairs at the front of the stage. I held my breath and shut my eyes as tightly as clenched fists. The scholarships head judge shuffled onto the stage still with his spectacles on the end of his nose. His spotless white coat glistened from the sunlight piercing through the window. He tapped the microphone twice and proceeded into a boring endless speech. After what felt like an hour, the professor finally declared the winner. ‘Congratulations Lucy Montgomery,‘ I couldn’t believe it. After six years of study, I am now the winner of the ‘Australian Butterfly Scientist Academic Scholarship!’ Next stop: tropical Daintree Forest, Queensland.

I explored a hidden area in search of the mythical Ulysses Butterfly. After three days, I came across tiny spheres like fish eggs. The humidity was exhausting me as I admired lots of little bush flowers along the way. I picked a flower when a blue speck flew past my eyes. I followed the electric blue speck, and my eyes filled with joy. I had found the beautiful Ulysses Butterfly!
