On Thursday I went to Lake Wendouree to do sailing. I leart how to sail a boat. I had to wear a life jacket and it was orange. The weather was windy and hot. It was funny when some of the boys were doing 360’s in the water. I was in the boat with the teacher that helped us sail. I didn’t get wet. I hope I get to do it again.
Today in Outdoor Ed we spent our time setting up and checking the tents and equipment because in 2 weeks time we’re heading on our first camp to the Grampians. We will be leaving on a Wednesday, staying 2 nights in tents and doing lots of fun activities like bushwalking, bush tucker tasting, boomerang throwing, visiting the Halls Gap Zoo and coming home on the Friday. All the good work we have completed in Outdoor Ed has been in preparation for this camp. Good luck boys!
1) What are 3 things you looking forward to about camp and why?
2) What are the teachers expecting your behaviour to be like on camp?
3) Give me 2 examples of things that you are going to do on camp to be a good leader.
In Pod 2 this term we are perfecting our money skills. How you ask? By playing SHOPS!!!
In teams we priced a large amount of boxes that out great teachers had collected for us other the holidays (i.e. cereal boxes, tissue boxes etc). We had to think about the ‘value’ of the objects and compare the products to those we saw in catalogues.
Next we made $25.00 using a variety of Australian coins and notes. This meant that we needed to know that there are 100 cents in a dollar and all the different ways that coins and notes can make $25.00.
Finally, we put the money in our wallet and then the shop fun began! We were counting money, adding up more than one item and even calculating change!
A busy week of lots of learning but also lots of fun! In the comments section, tell our readers one thing that you found tricky or learnt over the week.
