Once upon a time Brad, Matthew and Steven were home alone. It was a cold and windy Friday night. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
Brad opened the door very slowly, but when it was fully open it was a slimy man eating tiger. Brad quickiy shut the door, and ran to the front room. Brad told his brother’s but they didnt believe him.
There was another knock , so Steven went to get the door , but when he opened it, there was a hippo, it had five arm’s and six leg’s. Then he slamed the door shut. He ran back to the living room. Matthew shouted, “call 000″, So they did. Ten minute’s later the Police couldn’t find them.
Then there was another knock on the door, so Matthew opened the door, It was only Mum and Dad .The next day it was my Birthday.Brad had a big party Brad invited all his friend’s. Then Brad found out that it was only his friends dressing up. They thought it was funny.
Once upon a time Amy was home alone. It was a cold and windy Friday night. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. Amy went to answer the door. She was terrified, it was...... her pet poodle. Amy was so delighted that it wasn't what she thought it was. But then the door was knocked again. Amy was thinking the person at the door was someone delivering a collar for her gorgeous poodle, but it was actually an eight-eyed monster!
The house was bare, so there was nothing for Amy to hide behind. Amy was left to deal with the monster herself, and as for her poodle, well it just vanished into thin air. Amy didn't know what to do, because the monster was getting so close, so close now that Amy could smell the monster's stinky breath.
But then Amy heard a voice she recognised. It was her older brother Bob's voice saying 'I tricked you, didn't you know that it was April fools day? Amy's brother took off his monster costume. Amy was very, very, very mad. She had, had such a bad day at school, because she accidentally broke the teacher's glasses (and got a big detention for that), she also got blamed for a bad accident and finally, as Amy walked down the school corridor someone turned on the alarm, and you wouldn't want to think about the trouble she was in. Now Amy's brother Bob was teasing her about the big fright, when suddenly the doorbell rang.
This time everything was serious. This time it was not Bob. The door opened and Amy's mum appeared. Amy woke up. It was all a nightmare. Amy had just been part of the scariest nightmare ever! "You have been asleep for ten years!" Amy's mum told Amy. Amy was so shocked.
On Monday night after tea we had dessert. For dessert we had icecream and cake. On our icecream and cake we had chocolate drops and toppings. The choices of the toppings were strawberry, caramel and chocolate. The choices for the ice cream were vanilla or vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.
When we had finished our dessert some people wanted to have more dessert. The dessert was fantastic. We had a cake for Niamh and Charlotte P’s Birthday. Everyone thought it was a fantastic dessert. I really liked the dessert even the cake. The flavour we chose was vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.

At camp we had a quiz night. We had to get a team together and make up a name for the team. In my team was Rosie, Verity, Bethany, Jasmine, Madi and I. We named the team Burping Bananas. Another team was called The Money Makers another team was called Mathew Is Scared and another group was Groovy Girls. Round 1 was songs from movies some of the movies were, Despicable Me, The Lorax, Harry Potter and Toy Story. The winner of round 1 was the Groovy Girls.
Round 2 was songs from T.V shows. Some of the answers were Almost Naked Animals, H20 Just add water, Prank Patrol and Stoked. The winner of that round was a tie between Burping Bananas and Mathew is scared.
On camp we did rope bridge. We split into 2 groups. One of the groups was with Mr. Baldock and the other with Miss Verrusio. First we had to try and make a line across the imaginary boat. Then we had to make a ‘spider web’ with ropes.
We used 11 ropes to make the spider web. We used a blue rope at the top. Then in the middle we used a brown rope. I liked this activity, because we had help from Al, the instructor. Then we had to sit on the spider web. It was a success, because we could balance all of our weight onto the spider web.

On Tuesday it wasn’t only camp it was also a very exciting day for Niamh and Charlotte P…….. IT WAS THEIR BIRTHDAYS!!! Having a birthday at camp was pretty special, because they not only got attention from family and friends, they also got attention from lots of our camp instructors. Some of the special things the Birthday girls both got were tasty birthday cakes (there were two cakes, because there were two birthday girls) and yummy ice cream sundaes. There was a big birthday song for the birthday girls.
I had never been to such an exciting birthday ( it was more like a massive party really). Even though it was not my birthday I still enjoyed all the excitement, but as for Charlotte and Niamh they thought it was the best 9th birthday anyone could ever have. I also agreed that it was a brilliant birthday.

When we went to Challenge Hill we split up into two teams. One team had Mr .Baldock and the other had Miss Verrusio. The two main obstacles were the Mouse Trap and the Big Dipper Slide. Inside the Mouse Trap, it wasn’t that dark.
The Big Dipper Slide wasn’t really that fast. It was straight and a curve at the end. A few other activities were the ‘Chimney’ and the Commando. We thought that Challenge Hill was great!

Okay lets foucus on breakfast. For breakfast we had a choice of cereal or pancakes. Natalija had pancakes with cream, strawberries and chocolate drops. Jazz had pancakes with strawberries and chocolate drops. Our pancakes were yummy. Natalija also had cereal, but Jazz didn’t want to have any cereal.
Lots of people took a long time to finish their breakfast, some people even had 3 serves. Then after everyone had finished we all had to wash our own plates or bowls, and cutlery. We had a great breakfast.

On camp we did worm farming. Verity found a huge worm about 15 cm long. I found no worms and I got shocked, because there was a yellow box with a thousand worms in it. I got to have 4 worms in each layer, so I got 8 worms all together. We had so much fun making friends with the worms. :p
The worms were SO GROSS at first but when Verity and I put the worms in the bottles they weren’t so gross anymore. We put soil first, then hay, then more soil, then a tiny bit of hay up to the top and finally tomato, lettuce and strawberries. Verity put an apple core in her worm farm.
We had a good day.

Well a lot of things happend in free time, Brooke got duck poo on her by a flock of ducks that flew by, Elissa went to hospital and both of us fell down a pile of grass just to name a few. On the first day, free time took place near the bunk house and on the second day it took place around the volleyball court. Free time was really fun, because we got to choose from a range of different sports equipment, like soccer balls and Frisbees. Sometimes we would have free time if we had finished eating early, but we didn’t have much time to. During free time we both used cricket stumps as walking sticks and rowing paddles, it was so funny. Now comes Elissa, she went to hospital, because she had something in one eye, she couldn’t watch T.V. or read for two days. Now the funny part was Brooke. She got pooed on by a duck flying by. Now us two, we were just walking along when we didn’t realise that a pile of grass was in front of us, and we fell over it. Rosie’s opinon: I think if I had to rate free time I would give it 7 1/2 rubber chickens with a side order of chicks! Bethany’s opinon: I think free time was absolutely fantastic, and I would give it 8 rubber chickens with no side order.

The Year 3s had a fantastic time on their first school camp to Woodhouse on Monday and Tuesday this week. The weather was brilliant and the students got to experience a wide variety of activities. The students had the opportunity to do some problem solving games, rope bridge making, pond study in the onsite wetlands, a night walk, mini quiz night, billy cart racing, worm farm making and explore Challenge Hill. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed all the new experiences.
A big thank you to our parent helpers Bec Smailes and Margot Way. We really appreciated their enthusiasm and assistance throughout our camp. A special thank you to Miss Verrusio for joining us on camp and assisting Mr Baldock. We would also like to thank our instructors from Wilderness Escape, Moira and Al and their work experience person Cherry for all their preparation and running really engaging activities. Above you will find several blog posts created by the students on certain aspects of our camp experience. We hope you enjoy our reports and a slide show below of all the photos from our camp.
We have created these special animations below for all our Dads or Special friends for Father’s Day. We hope you enjoy them.

For health this term we have been exploring bones. Last Friday our class took over the St. Joseph building while the Year 5s were on camp. We got into groups and had to trace around a person’s body onto the very large butcher’s paper we were given. We then had to correctly place all the bones inside the traced body. There were a few challenges and laughs along the way, but we all got there in the end. What do you think of our skeletons?
