Class 5 Swimming


Class 5 went down to the pools, starting from tuesday to friday. When we arrived at the pools we all got dressed into our togs and we had a quick rinse. I saw the amount of how many people that were swimming there were 11 people. After all that 2 people went at a time and started our training to get into a group. We all did backstrokes and free style. We all got put into groups.

The next 2 days later we got into our groups and started doing our lessons but since Miss Paget wasn’t here we had a reliever Miss Gamarlee. We did backstrokes and relays. We started using our board and do strokes. Then we did side strokes and streamlines. Then we went got dressed and went off.

Finally the last day of swimming I thought. We got changed and we were getting trained by a swimming instructor. We were doing lots of different things like backstrokes, relays, streamlines, and using our boards but no diving or bombing. We were swimming with our arms behind our ears but using a board, but the instructor said no breathing. But how ever we didn’t get enough time to have freestyles.

AFL Class 5


Two weeks ago class five and I were going to AFL. AFL is a sport named the, Australian Football League. When we first started going to AFL we started practising the drop punt. But make sure you keep the laces away from faces. So you have the ball placed in your hands and you put the laces part of the ball facing your way and kick it. Really easy.

Yesterday, Wed, June 19

We went again to AFL and we first started off with a warm up. So what we did was we got a partner and there were spider man and batman, I was in the batman group. I got a ball and my partner had to run away before I hit her with the ball, but doing the hand pump. It was hard

Plant & Food Research Science Visit

Three people from Plant & Food Research named Jacob, Laura, and Lara came to Pt England School to do some science. What they do for a living is science obviously, they look and test fruit and veggies to make sure it’s not sour but sweet. They all had to go to university and learn more ways find new stuff, earthquake's just to make us safe everyday.

First experiment they showed us cabbage that had been dissolved then it turned purple. What if you can mix some green stuff with the purple cabbage. They asked if you mix it would you get a green or red color. It turned out to red because Purple + Green = Red.
Eventually it was a acid.

Meanwhile they pulled out dry ice. But they had where gloves for protection because if you touch it with your hands you will probably burn you’ll hands off. They got some room temperature water into a bowl and put some dry ice into it. It was like a white volcano erupting but it was foam. Soon they got some dish washing liquid and put the dry ice in. It was erupting with bubbles now it was bubbles.

The very last experiment was a solid and liquid. They got some and mixed it with the color green dye and some stuff that looked like milk. Mixed it all and then the knife came up with lumpy gruesome stuff and who ever had a question gets some. They started throwing it at people, and not directly at the face but at them.

After all of the cool experiments they had some more questions that means more lumpy stuff for them. After all the cool things that were going on we ask what made them get into Science. They said that they got interested into science because their friends. Then after all the cool experiments they went.

MADD Messenger

Over the last couple of weeks some girls, only girls have been going to this place called MADD Messenger. What they do is teach girls to change their lives and be yourself. Ohhh I forgot to tell you their names, Caroline. She is the laddie that teaches us to be us. This is the quote they told us, You can only do you, Your unique.

We have only had 7 or 6 week at MADD. Lots of girls tell them about what they do for their life. They talk about our own talent like the 7 smarts, doing smart, maths smart, writing smart. My smart is Math Smart.
