Go for Your Life !

At assembly today the Go For Your Life team came to talk to us about everyday food and sometimes food. There were questions and there were prizes and I got a beach volley ball. Ricky got a sweat band. We played a copy cat game, musical freeze and a balloon game.

The Mystery Bug !

Click on the picture to find out what this grub grows into.

I found this grub on a tree first then it walked on the path. I have seen one of these before. This was my second time.
I picked it up because it looked nice and because I wanted to show my friends. I put it in some bark. I used a leaf to get it on and then I had to use a stick to keep it on. Then I covered it with another bit of bark and walked to school.
When I patted it, it was soft. I thought it was a female but it might be a male. It was small and cute and it had a little black head. It looks like a witchetty grub.
It looks like a spit fire.It was about to spit. Tim scared it. He got a rubber spider and he was trying to get it to spit. The spit looks like skin colour it is ooey and gooey and disgusting. It poisons its enemies. It hides in bark because it is camouflaged.
It looks so small it's about 3.5cm long. Tim asked Jamie about what it turns into but Jamie doesn't know.

Plover Invasion

We have 4 plovers on our oval. They are scaring other birds and us. They open their wings and make loud sounds. We are not allowed to play on the oval until they go away. Andy locked both of the gates.

Our class decided that if we see the plovers coming we will:

Stay calm and quiet.

Protect our eyes.

Walk to a safe place like the classroom or veranda.

If Bowling Balls Were Made of China...

If bowling balls were made of china they would break really easily on the bowling alley because they would be made of china like plates. That's wrong! So, to make it right you would have to make out of steel or plastic.
