On Monday 23rd June the two 3/4 classes went to the PAC (Performing Arts Centre) for Pet Education. When we got there, there was a lady her name was Sarah and she had a dog and his name was Sam. Sarah told us how to treat our dogs or cats or any other pets. Sarah told us that your pets should have a good environment. It should have good shelter where it sleeps and good exercise. Your pet needs desexing when it is young, so it doesn’t have heaps of babies, and if it is a dog or cat it should always have a collar. Sarah told us what you should do if you want to pat a dog or cat. Near the end of Pet Education Sarah asked our teachers to choose four people from each class to pat Sam. Ms Verrusio said if you don’t have a dog stand up then four people from each class got to pat Sam. At the end of Pet Education Sarah gave everyone a booklet to read about how to treat your pets. Then it was time to go back to class. When we left Sam barked at us saying bye. And that’s Pet Education.

On Wednesday 25th of June we had Health. Mrs Pike told us to get into groups of 2 or 3. Hannah and Rosie were my partners. After we got into groups we got told what was happening. We were going to make bodies. We traced Hannah and then named it. We named it Hannah at first, but then we changed it to Kevin.
Then we started. Hannah and Rosie did the Brain and I did the heart. We did the heart and the brain and we moved onto the lungs. I looked up information for the brain. The information we got was, the Brain controls the body. For the heart we got, the heart is one of the most important organs in the human body. The kidneys are bean shaped organs.
On Wednesday 25th June Mrs Pike took us for health, she made us split up into partners and trace one of the partners bodies. My partner was Elissa , we had a long debate, but I ended up tracing Elissa. Although Elissa couldn’t fit on the paper so we had to get a head extension.
After I had traced Elissa we drew on all the body parts we knew. It didn’t look very good though, probably because the ribs looked like bacon. When we had finished this copy Mrs pike made us do all of the organs. At first Elissa did the brain and I did the heart. I finished before her though, because she was putting lots of “detail” into it. As soon as I had finished the heart I did the kidneys, I found out that the kidneys look like a baked bean with an afro.
When Elissa had finally finished the brain she started looking up facts for the brain and heart. We found out that the Kidneys represent 0.5% of the bodies total weight. The heart is the most important organ in the body and that the brain is made out of 90% water. After this we looked up all the other body parts and decided to call him Insane Bolt.
We had a great day.
On Tuesday week 9 All the year 3s went to the Zoo for camp. This was the first school camp that the year 3s had been on. When the year 3s got to the Zoo we put our luggage in a room with all animal skins on the walls, and the saddest part for Emily, there was a real elephants leg as a stool! After we put our bags away we went to a lesson about Tigers. The person telling us about Tigers was a women called Angela.
She talked about why Tigers are endangered. One of the reasons why Tigers are endangered is that people are killing them for their skin. What people are doing to help tigers is donating to a foundation and starting breeding programs at Zoos. I think people should help Tigers instead of being against them.

On Tuesday we went to the year 3 ZooSnooze Camp. We went on a bus and it took about 45 minutes. When we got to the zoo we put our bags in a room and then we had lunch. After lunch we learnt about Tigers. Did you know that in the wild the Chinese tiger is extinct? After this we saw a tiger having lunch and his name was Tuan.
