Lava!’ We saw some lava; actually, we went in the
Colbinabbin Primary School house the Hoppers.
ON MONDAY, September 17 our fantastic MARC Van teacher Fiona Smith organised the Literacy Day for a range of small schools at the Kyabram Fauna Park. Students rotated through activities including Bush Poetry with Mick Coventry (see some below) and they had the chance to hear how author Trace Balla goes about creating her stories. Bush Poetry by Macey Ryan Australia is…. The place to be It is surrounded by the sea There is heaps of buzzing bees All around the gum trees And everyone gets dirty knees When my mum calls in for tea We all must say please Bush Poetry by Adam Ali Australia is…. A kangaroo And a pink galah Drove a rusty car It went so far And they crashed in a big jar Melbourne Museum/iMax Report by Ruth - Prep WE HAD to go to school early because we went to Melbourne. When we got there, we had a quick snack. Then we went to the iMax theatre. We watched Live Africa. We saw a snake. It hid in the sand. The snake waited for an animal to come. An animal came but the snake did not get it. We saw a crocodile. Animals were drinking water, but the crocodile scared them. Some got pulled into the water. We had to put some glasses on. After the iMax theatre we went to the Museum. We saw dinosaur bones and we looked through some things. When we looked through them, we saw dinosaurs. The dinosaurs were alive. We saw butterflies and a bee too. We saw ants and a snake too. We saw some spiders and we saw some crystals too. We saw stuffed animals. We saw a kangaroo and an ostrich and we saw a lion too. After we went to the Museum, we went to where Mrs MacLean works. When we saw Mrs MacLean we rode in a trolley. The preps sat on it. Everyone else stood. We went on a lift and we went down steps. Then we went outside and had a photo. We put our bags on the ground. Mr Alley took a picture of us. Then we got our bags. Then we went home on the bus. On the way home, I had a sleep. Then I woke up. Then we were at school. Dad picked me up. Report by William - Prep WE WENT to the iMax theatre. We saw flamingos and mountain monkeys. We saw some lava; actually, we went in the lava! We saw orange and black leaves disintegrating. We saw a waterfall. The man dropped the camera into the waterfall. We saw a lizard. The lizard had a way of not burning his feet. He lifted his feet up. He thought the snake’s tail was a grub. He got away.
We went to the Museum. We saw crystals and we went to another three-D exhibit – there was a volcano. It was bigger than Mount Everest. It showed the lava running down the mountain. I thought it was going to get me. We saw dinosaur bones. They were really, really big. We saw a brontosaurus. It was huge. We saw a rollercoaster. We did not have to wear the glasses. We saw lots and lots of stuffed animals. There was a computer thingy that we could see out of. We could see the animals up close. The rhinoceros is my favourite. Then we went to Mrs MacLean. We went underground. We saw a train – it was actually wood on wheels. We went into the meeting room.
