Hello from Paris

Hello Pod 1! Well I’m finally in Paris. It is such an amazing city. The Eifeel Tower was spectacular, I visited there on my first day here. Can you believe 25,000 people go there every day? 25,000 people a day. It was packed with tourists when I went. It was built in 1889 for the World Fair and it’s still standing today. Amazing!!

I’ve also seen lots of other famous buildings  and places. Today I’m going to the Louve. It’s like a massive art gallery and it’s where the famous Mona Lisa is.

Actually I’d better get going before everyone else gets there.

See ya later !

Sandy saw the Queen

Hi Pod 1. Well guess what?? The other day while walking around the streets of London, I saw the Queen go by. She was going to give a speech in parliament and I saw her. Can you believe that? Lots of people were lining up just to see her go by and give a little wave. I also got to see Prince Charles and Camilla.

imageI’m catching a train to Wales today. It’s not far – only 3 hours by train.

Ok , talk again soon.

but I got a great photo of where she lives. I met with Mr Bean and he says to say, “Hi”. He didn’t say much else though!

I saw Big Ben yesterday and it’s massive. I’m having an amazing time. Hope you guys are all well and are working hard for your teachers (especially Pod 1A) 😉

okay I’d better go now. Talk to you all soon.

Colosseum

Colosseum
by Luke, Nayah, Anas, Haylie, Tamzyn, Brayden, Codie, Ally, Jackson, Bella and Bri

We are doing a World Investigation and we are learning about the Colosseum from Ancient Rome. Rome is in a country called Italy.
We have decided to build a model of the Colosseum. We asked Mrs. Gibson for some clay and Mr. Ross for a wooden board for the floor.
Come back and visit the Pod 1 Blog soon for an update on our progress.

The Fundraiser for Donegan’s Farm

Pod 1 had a biscuit fundraiser to raise money for the school excursion to the farm.

We made Anzac biscuits, Chocolate chip biscuits and Chocolate chip anzac biscuits and sold them for 50 cents or $1.00 and they were YUMMY.

We raised $74.00. That means that we paid for 7 kids to go on the bus to the farm.

If you would like to know how to make our biscuits, head to our Cooking page and have a look at the recipe and then you will know how to make them.

Below is a recount of the farm excursion by Djarkira.

On Friday Pod 1 went on an excursion to the farm. First I saw cows. The cows poo was smelly and gross. Next we saw Kevin the fat pig and the pony with the sharp teeth. Soon we got some bread to feed the ducks. It was fun at the farm. It was awesome!
