Circuits

We’re ‘switched on’ in 6C.  Recently we learned about electricity and explored the differences between series and parallel circuits.  We were highly successful in our endeavours with many of us realising that science is pretty cool!

Grade 6 City Camp

Wow, I’m exhausted.  I’ve been walking for what feels like forever. All I hear is, ‘Stick to the left!’  We have just left the Immigration Museum.  It was quite interesting. We were handed a passport and had to answer a series of questions.

We continued to walk to the Yarra Cruise pick up. My legs were heavy and my back was sore. All the walking was worth it though.  We boarded the boat; I was amazed at how long the trip went for.  I’m not going to lie, it got a bit hard to listen to the commentator near the end. He told us about Melbourne’s landmarks and other things surrounding us. It turns out that every place, sporting ground, bridge or river was built for a reason.

Here we are, walking . . . AGAIN!

We went back to the venue with our stomachs eager to eat. On the menu was honey soy chicken with rice. Everyone had to scoff their food down so we could make it to the Melbourne Star in time. Once we got on the Star, it didn’t take long for us to start dancing. Miss Mac even recorded us because she was so impressed.  It was a fun experience – the city really sparkles at night.  After a long day, it was time to sleep.

“Girls, wake up”, said Ms Chandler softly.  We got ready for the day and went to the Shrine. We dressed up in soldier and nurse uniforms and got to hold objects that the soldiers used for an up-close look.  We walked around the silent display rooms showing our respect for our brave heroes.

On our way to the Treasury Building, we stopped off at Hosier Lane. The graffiti was amazing; it must have taken a long time to do.

After a tiring three days, it was time to go home. Was it fun? Yes, it most certainly was!
