A Camp Story By Sibs!!!

Hello I am  Sibs,
My mum has let me write something and I am going to tell you about my first ever camp that I went on a couple of weeks ago.

The morning walk!
 On the year 4's morning walk we saw lots of interesting stuff like a dance hall where on a Sunday people would go there to dance.       
 I spotted lots of old fashion houses and lots of beautiful things that I knew mum would like as well.

We saw a little shed with a banner saying "the shed" .  

 Then we saw the most exciting bit of all!.................
We saw a 300 year old tree that was still alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I  took pictures of lots of things to show my mum.

      Our last activity was the pottery!!!   It was very interesting .The lady showed us a machine that was called "wheel" ......     she  got some white clay and made it in to a glass or a vase!!!    We each got a turn of making the glass taller, bigger, smaller , thinner or fatter.

On the way back I  saw a little shelter with  a rooster on top with a N S W E  on the rooster.

You have to look closely at the top of the rotunda to see it!!
We also saw what happened to it when the floods wrecked the city!

    We loved making our boomerangs.!!!  I got a boomerang with a crocodile on it. I painted it with my finger! I have got it on my kitchen wall!

I hope you liked my information , goodbye for now.

  7. Hi Sibs,

    Thanks for sharing your camp adventures - you write very well.
    I like trees, and that old tree was a stunning specimen; I believe it's a Moreton Bay Fig. The pottery wheel looked like heaps of fun!

    Bet you're looking forward to school hoidays. Have fun.
