Unfortunately Microsoft’s Internet Explorer doesn’t display our blog correctly. Many of the widgets installed in the right hand column near the bottom stretch across the whole screen. I personally use Google’s ‘Chrome’, and am very happy with it. You can import all your settings and bookmarks from Internet explorer if you decide to change.

Zoo Snooze Camp: Save the Sun Bears

In term two we went on a Zoo Snooze Camp.  We looked at the different animals at the zoo. We even got the ability to see the animals at night. We even got to go in the Sun Bear’s enclosure. Our focus was on the sun bears. We found out that the sun bears were endangered, because people got bear bile out of the sun bears, which is used for medicine. They are kept as pets and when they get big people give them to the restaurants and they chop off the paws and turn them into bear paw soup. People also keep Sun Bears on Sun Bear farms in small cages.

We are doing a planet keeper challenge to help the sun bears.

We are selling yummy foods to raise money for the sun bears. We are raising awareness by blogging about the Sun Bears, speaking at our school assemblies and talking to other classes.

Below is a slide show of our experiences while on the Zoo Snooze Camp.

Mary MacKillop Performance

On Friday we went to a performance. The performance was about Mary MacKillop. Mary MacKillop [Celia] was funny and also there was a man called Scott who was also funny. I think the performance was wonderful. After the performance there were questions and one of the questions was, ‘ what was your favourite character?’. The person who played Mary said, “young Mary” and Scott said, “I liked Kenny”.

Joel’s Spelling Poem

Digging in quarries, I wish I would find mysteries

But some of the mysteries would be luxuries

The luxuries might be old melodies

Or lost lotteries

Olivia’s spelling poem.

There was a company

in a country

that grew strawberries,

they were plump and delicious

and very nutritious,

grown by a family

for more than a century,

now thay have a really big factory.
