Entering: Term 3!

So all I have to say is this: we have entered Term 3! I can’t wait until we start Inquiry projects because we are picking the topics from other classes including the 3/4’s classes, I wonder if we’re going to work in a group again like last term.

Ever since we came back from camp our class have been working hard on our concert and when I say hard I mean HARD! So far its has been really hard with the dancing and all but with the help of Mrs. Teoh and Mrs. Smith. We also had the students from Emmaus college who offered us free tickets to their concert ‘Beauty and the beast’, they even paid the bus company so we could get on the bus and see their concert.

On Monday the students from Deakin University come to our class and we split into groups, the people in my group was Jorell, Kinulie, Mia and Katrina. We were with the Deakin students named Mr. Sires and Mr. Davies, they were really interesting they thought us about the solar system. It was really cool.

My goals this Term was to be good at listening to the teacher. What are you looking forward to this term?

Camp at Mt. Evelyn 2015!

On the first day of Term 3, almost all of the Seniors (including yours truly) got to school around 8.15. Unfortunately some students weren’t there in the library.

Anyway, it was about a 45 minute drive on the bus to Mt. Evelyn and we were greeted by one of the camp staff named Lauren. It was drizzling when we got there so after we got of the bus, we took our bags out of the boot of the bus and place them under the shelter. After we were done placing all our bags under the shelter we got our lunch and sat around the fire place but unfortunately it was not on fire but eventually one of the camp staff set it on fire and the amazing thing is that the fire lasted all the way until night after the fantastic dinner on the first day.

On the second day we did a lot of activities but one of them was canceled and that was the high ropes, fortunately, the group that I was in (Cockatoos) manage to do it first before the sky started to rain again. Although I did lots of fun and exiting activities I’ll just talk (or type) about my favourite activity. Sorry. 🙁

My favourite activity was the Giant Swing because you don’t have to do anything – the people in your group will pull you up the swing, all you have to do is say stop when you are high enough and pull the trigger. Anyway I absolutely love camp and I would like to go there again. 😀

Camp at Mount Evelyn! :D

I just can’t wait to go to camp! I’m really exited about doing the ‘leap of faith’ activity and same goes for the other activities that us year fives and year sixes are about to do, just to let you know, the other activities that we are soon going to do are: Giant swing, Hut building, Archery, High ropes and Flying fox. I’m pretty sure that we are going to go on a night walk during one of the nights at the camp.

Ok, enough about the stuff that we’re going to do, instead, I’ll talk (or type) about how we’re gonna get there or something like that. Anyway, we are supposed to be at school by 8.30 latest 8.45 and if you miss the bus you have to go there by your parent’s car (I think). Well, I guess we all know that – but really, I still am feeling very exited since theres only a couple more days left until we go to camp. Have you ever felt exited for something that you’ve been waiting for a long time?
