World Environment Day-Bonnie D

 

On the 5th of June, it was World Environment Day the last Friday we got notes handed out saying that for World Environment Day we were meant to wear blue. That morning in assembly, it was like sitting in a sea of blue. The people with the most blue got these blue cards, which they had to present to get a prize. The prize was a little glass frog. From our class Conor and Greer got a blue card. After assembly, we went and spent some time with our buddy class. Our buddy class is Chantel’s class. My buddy is a prep called Manyata. In my group, there was Angus, Max and Boston but since Boston and max were away, it was only me, my buddy and Angus. These groups were for an experiment we are going to do with our friends. When we were finished the experiment we ate lunch with our friends and then continued with our day nothing else about world environment day until the last session when we got an incursion about electric bikes. The man teaching us was named beau. Half things he taught us were really new to us. I had a lot of fun.

Hoop time- Angus

HOOP TIME

On the 2nd of August, the 3/4 Area went to Hooptime with the 5/6 coaches. My team at hoop time was called the Suns. My coach was very good, (I know this because we won all our games) and we had lots of fun. Our first match was against BN Bulls. We beat the bull out of them! I was in power forward when I scored our team’s first goal.

Our second match was against BN bears. We won 22-0. I reckon we should have scored more considering we were BSWPS’s top team. The next team we played was the BN breakers. No easier. We won 16-2. My coach said we should win the next one because we beat them in a practice match. We won 18-4 against BSWPS Swans.

Hooptime

On the 2nd of august

We went to Hooptime in Coburg North and played against other schools from all around Brunswick. The schools were Brunswick North and a German school. My times were 1pm,  11:35 and 2pm.  We won one game and lost three. The other schools were good. I was in team yellow with Mansi, Ethan, Vicky, Emily, Ella and Seth who was good at shooting and got a goal by standing past the three-point line it was incredible I ran and gave him a hug I almost pushed him over! I jumped with joy

THANK YOU SHAR FOR ORGANISING THIS EVENT FOR US

My holidays-Ollie

On the holidays…

…I went…

Camping.

When we got there🚘 I played (threw rocks in the stream) with my sister…

For a long time.

After that I played some more.

Edith* and I took some

Pictures of the place.

Then we gathered firewood for

The fire.

Dad started cooking dinner🍔🍔 and Edith was looking at the duck’s.

I found a…

…bridge.

It had two stones in the middle and a little water fall.

Then we climbed a really steep hill.

It was getting dark.🌜

We climbed back down just in time.

We then had dinner.

Then we slept.
