On Monday the 18th of May the 5/6’s went to camp. We went to Sovereign Hill in Ballarat. In Ballarat we went panning for gold, shopping, saw Blood on the Southern Cross and Romeo and Juliet. When we went panning for gold most people didn’t find gold because it’s really hard. Cause the gold is smaller than an ant. When you pan for gold you have a pan you get some sand from the stream and you shake the sand out bit by bit. It’s easy to spot the gold in the pan because it stands out from the sand. It was really fun. We also saw two live shows. The first one we saw was Blood on the Southern Cross. It was about how people lived on the goldfields and judging by what they showed life was hard for everyone. Then in 1854 the government passed a law that any person that entered the goldfields had to have a license, and if you didn’t have one you would have to go to jail. Then in 1854 Peter Lalor said that all the miners that had licenses would burn them, and so they did.

The second live show we saw was Romeo and Juliet but what we saw wasn’t Romeo and Juliet it was how to be a proper lady and a proper gentleman, it was really funny then they also did another show this one was black beard the pirate and it was a pantomime. It was so funny. Then the best part of all was shopping. Shopping was the best you were allowed to bring $20 or less to spend in Ballarat. And the best shop to shop at is the Lolly Shop. There is every kind of lolly you can think of. There are also heaps of other shops.


So now you know how much fun Sovereign Hill is and maybe one day you can visit it to.


Saying Goodbye

I just want to say goodbye to the student blogging challenge because I have learnt so many things doing the challenge. When you search up facts to put on your blog you learn some facts as well. Like when we had to write a post about inventing a board game or doing research a board game you don’t know about because I did research about monopoly and I don’t know about monopoly.

There were heaps more challenges I could talk about but it will take to long but you get it don’t you, you learn so much with the blogging challenge.

School holidays

School holidays have finished and we’re back to school. Now we are in term 2. I love school because I learn new things every day and I also make lots of friends. In term 2 we will learn about new subjects and other fun things that we can do for the rest of the year.

My poem

Today I put on some nail polish that was blue and white

And from a distance it was very bright.

I had the nail polish on for nearly 2 weeks

And when I tried to remove it, it left some streaks.

I needed my mum to get the rest of it off.

By the time she got it off 

I started to get a cough

Next time I think I’ll buy some fake nails

So I can tell my tails.
