On Thursday 15 of September,we went to Queensland for 12 days. We stayed at Surfers Aquarius in Surfers Paradise. My favourite place in Queensland that we went to was Sea World. I liked Sea World the best because I got to see the animals from the sea. One of the best things I saw was The Dolphin Show. In the show I saw dolphins do somersaults in the air, the trainers riding the dolphins, dolphins following actions and dolphins getting rewarded with fish. When the show had ended we went to Nickelodeon Land to go on Donatello’s Ninja Flyers.
My favourite book is The Cat In The Hat By Dr Seuss. It is my favorite book because it is funny and shows humor. It’s funny because the cat can balance on a ball, while holding lots of things like a fish in a bowl, milk in a glass and a cake on a plate.
My favorite part is when the cat was holding lots of things and then he fell on his head and dropped everything and made a big mess. Then the cat bought Thing one and Thing two and they made even more mess. My favorite sentence is
Then I let down my net,
It came down with a PLOP!
And I had them! At last!
Those two Things had to stop.
Then I said to the cat,
“Now you do as I say.
You pack those Things
And you take them away!”
On Monday 15th August, it was a beautiful sunny day and all the 3/4’s went on an Excursion to the Botanical Gardens and Federation Square.
Firstly we went to the Botanical Gardens and a tour guide showed us around. Then we had recess on a grassy hill near where we just parked the bus. After recess, the lady showed us around again and we saw a sign it said hug a tree and tell it a secret so I did!
Then we found out more about Indigenous Australia. We did an activity to learn how Indigenous Australians made string baskets. We chose a partner and did this with a string. We twisted it two times and the we put it over the top the string while your partner put their finger up.
Then she started to talk about Indigenous Australia again. Then we made our own pattern by painting but we had to make the paint. It was fun but then I lost mine while we were walking back to our bags! Then we washed our hands and started eating. After lunch we went to Federation Square in the city. We learnt more about Indigenous Australia. Firstly we looked at pictures about Indigenous Australians then we read some Information. After that we went outside and looked at more pictures. Then we went back in and looked at Indigenous Australia. We looked at things like boomerangs, Skinned coat and weapons. Then we said Goodbye and thank you and when back to school.
Digestive System Incursion.
TODAY WE WENT TO LEARN ABOUT THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.
We WENT TO THE HALL AND WE LEARNT HOW OUR FOOD DIGESTS IN OUR BODY.
ALSO WE PLAYED A GAME THAT WAS LIKE YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM AND IT WAS PERISTALSIS. We used a table tennis ball and a stocking. We had to push the table tennis ball to the end of the stocking and we had to put our hand under the stocking and you had to catch the table tennis ball. Also when we finished our turn we passed the table tennis ball and the stocking on to the next person in our team.
THE WINNING TEAM GOT 1 JELLY BABY.
THEN WE TALKED ABOUT THE STOMACH AND WE DID AN EXPERIMENT ON BREAD AND WATER.
WE PUT THE BREAD AND WATER ON A TABLE AND WE HAD CUPS,CLOTHS AND A PLASTIC BAG TO PUT THE BREAD AND WATER In.
First we put the bread in the bag and then the water
Secondly we closed the bag and we Digested the Bread and water.(we added cocoa powder)
Finally we got our cloth and we started to push it together to make poop. The poop still had grains in it ,it looked gross and it looked brown.
It looked yucky because it still looked like the bread.
