Open Night!

On Wednesday the 22nd of May, my Radio Show group did a special edition one on our Berwick Lodge Open Night. It was really fun and exciting. I did it with Jckson, Indi and Ben.H. We muddled up at times but it was sure worth it.

Sadly, Viki could not make it so we had to go on without her. We did our exact one that we did a few weeks ago on live Radio except that we had to cut a few bits out.

Coal creek Park and Museum…

On Wednesday the 8th of May, the grade  fives and sixes went to Coal Creek Park and Museum. This excursion was to tell us more about Australian History.

Frist we had a long bus ride which took around two hours. On the bus, I saw some beautiful sights. After that, we had recess. We had to put our bags in a train, that was not moving, which reminded me about the Hogwarts Express from Harry Potter. After that we went down to top station where we had a train ride all the way back to top station. The train was slow at first and then it went a little faster. I sat down with all my friends and we had a chat while admiring the view. I also saw an emu. Next we went to the general store, where we could spend $10 on whatever we wanted. I didn’t buy anything but my friends brought lollies and they shared some with me. Then we went to the train where we put our things in, so everyone could put away the things that they bought.

After that the tour guide took us around. Frist we went to the Butter and cream factory where we learnt about what life as a dairy farmer would be like. After that we went to the barber’s and the shops around it. We also went to the courtroom.  After that we had an education session, we went down to an old, English school. We learnt a lot of things there. We learnt about old handwriting, punishments, life as a child and much more. I like the whole lesson but I liked the part when the girls got to leave and arrive first! Then we had lunch. After that we went to the courtroom to film a bit for film festival.  Finally, it was the end of the day and we went back to the bus.

I had a great day at Coal Creek Park and Museum. I learnt a lot of things about the olden days!

Coal Creek

Coal Creek Excursion

On the 8th of May grade 5/6 went to Coal Creek in Korumburra. 6M had the tram ride first but to start with I’ll talk about the bus ride and the train. The bus trip took 1 hour and a bit. When we arrived we put our stuff on a train that did not move. Then as I said we went down to the platform and while we waited we looked for some coal also the lady showed us a layer of coal which was all in a line and there was heaps. We ended up going doing a whole lap and seeing some animals. After the tram ride we pretty much just had the general store where I bought lollies some coal and a boomerang. We also had a guided tour as well but after that we ate lunch and got back on the bus for the ride home.

Coal Creek

Last Wednesday, the 8th of May 2013, all of the grade 5’s to 6’s went on an excursion to Coal Creek. It was really well built and all the buildings and places were re-created to make it look like we were living in the 1900 hundreds with really old things. When we finally arrived after a long bus trip, we had our snack, moved into our groups and put all our stuff on a train that looked a little like the train from ‘Harry potter’. Once we had all finished our snack we went on a really slow but interesting train ride. It showed off all the buildings and animals and hills. After the train ride we went to a school that was like the ones that a child from the 1900 hundreds. I quickly learnt that the rules for school were a lot stricter then in modern time. They used the Cain as a usual punishment and they had to write with ink pens which is harder than you might think. After the session of ‘school ‘ we had our lunch and then quickly after, went to the gift shop and bought some stuff. I bought, Raspberry drops and a train whistle that I had a little too much fun with. Then we got some filming done for our film festival in the old court they had. Luke was the judge, Ben and Jackson were the Lawyers, Leighton and I were the police and Travis and Indi were the defendants. After we got our filming done, we got back into our classes and got onto the bus for another long ride home. Coal Creek was awesome and I learnt a lot of new things

Coal creek

Last wednesday we went on an excursion to coal creek. It took an hour and a quarter to get there but as soon as we got there we saw a building that said coal creek on it so I thought that the building was the whole of coal creek until we went out the back of the building to realise that it was a whole old fasion town. Our first activity was a train ride after eating our snack. after the train ride we walked over to the genral store were there were some merchindsise and lollies to buy so I bought two jars of lollies, one jar of rasberry dr0ps and another jar of musk drops. After that we went t a few closed shops and then we did some filming in the courthouse for film festival. IT WAS A GREAT EXCURSOIN!!!!!!!!!!
