100WC Week 30

…  Drum   …     Cornflake   …   Exciting  …   Lion …    Danced …

Yesterday, we went to the circus. There were people with drums marching around the yellow and red big top in perfect rhythm with each other. There was a lion that danced on the stage and acrobats were doing tricks on the lion’s back, it was so exciting. Instead of buying food at the circus we made honey joys for everyone that came with us. But because my sister is allergic to cornflakes she made brownies by herself, it was soooo unfair but I still like honey joys.

100 WC Week 27

… My Ultimate Adventure…

During a hiking exhibition in the Grampians I saw an eagle but this was no ordinary eagle it had a pelicans beak, a chickens squawk,  and an eagles body and legs … My Ultimate Adventure… was when the eagle/pelican/chicken landed on my shoulder but unfortunately pooed on my shoulder. I also got lost on the track and never got home untill the eagle carried me all the way back to the hamptons. When i got home my wife and three children had a new and extremely strange pet named mystic.

100WC Week 28

Not so long ago in England there was a royal meeting at the Buckingham palace and as prince William walked into the palace he turned around and a beautiful lady was standing at the gate. She was the only female that really caught his eye so after the meeting she was still standing  there so William went to talk to her and after a long conversation he took her to the pier of a local beach/river. Many people say it was love at first sight but the newly married couple thought it was just pure fate.Afterwards they bought a lovely dog named Prince.

My summer holidays 2014/15

Dear Lee,

I found your letter about what you did over the summer holidays quite interesting. I have never been to Tasmania but from your letter it sounds very enjoyable and if I go to Tasmania I believe I will have a lot of fun what else did you do in Tasmania were there many tourist destination or was it just like being at home but in a different location. When you went to Tasmania was it could and raining or was it nice and sunny because I have heard that Tasmania is normally quite cold. Over my summer holidays I went to Albury and Gold Coast. I went to Albury a couple of days after Christmas and Gold Coast around a week and a half before school started up again. If you ask me I have no favourites because they were to very different holidays in Albury we stayed around the resort at the pool and tanning and in Gold Coast we had to stayed with our parents and went shopping and to the pool the days we weren’t at the theme parks. Yay. In Gold Coast we went to dreamworld and whitewater world. Personally I enjoyed whitewater world better and I went on all the rides except the triple vortex and 2 waterslides that I didn’t see. In dreamworld I went on a ride called the shockwave and a ride that was like you were in a circular boat that fits 5 people and you go through a rough river that has strong waves,  water pistols that squirt you, but the hand held water pistols cost 2 dollars which means no one did it.  The river was called the river rapids and its theme was the Ballarat gold rush. The day we went to the river rapids it was pooring so we got wet anyway. On the first night we were there it started to poor and we were at the 7d cinema and we went shopping because all the shops are open until 10 pm at night. The second day it was nice and sunny and we went shopping again. The third day it was sunny and we had a Starbucks Frappuccino that was strawberry cheesecake and we went shopping again. The fourth day we went to white water world and it was so fun after white water world we went shopping and got starbucks  that day was sunny aswell. The fifth day was freezing and raining all day but we still went to dream world and got starbucks.the sixth day we went to the airport on public transport and when we were waiting to board we went to the victorias secrt shop and I got a new body mist that smells like red plum and fressia which smells amazing. My friend got a new body mist that smells the best as well. We finally got to board and I got to sit with two of my friends Victoria and Alannah on the plane all we did was play on our ipads which meant the flight went really quickly and when we were on the plane we bought the best banana bread. One thing I learnt on my holidays was that gold coast and Melbourne I have a different time zone because gold coast has not got day light savings because it is still light when it is 8.30 at night.

And that is what I did on my holiday.

Kind regards Holly

camp recount 2014

On the 24th of November 2014 the year 5/6’s of 2014 drove up to Canberra for our 5/6 camp.

My favourite part of the camp was when we went to the A.I.S for a tour. We went around the A.I.S and after that we went to a room called sportex and we got to play different games to do with different sports such as seeing if you can do a chin up and the sport was gymnastics or seeing your flexibility which was also gymnastics. I couldn’t believe it when Jess(teacher) was in the basketball cage and managed to get 2 shots in from in the wheelchair.

I think everyone had an amazing time at camp because I know I did.
