Worm data

On Wednesday Lydia and I made a worm farm.
We want to find out how we can improve it.



Today we made a chart to collect our data. 
We had to change the cover on our worm farm, because the colors we already had, were too bright, and there was no action that we could see.
Today the worm farm was full of water. We are going to try and find out why.
We couldn't see any worms.

Making a model.

In the Flou7ishingBrains, we have been making models. We now know that making mistakes, wasn't that bad. We had a competition to see who could make the most mistakes. I made 2 mistakes. One of them was I cut a slit vertically, not horizontally. Then I cut my leg too short, and had to do it again.

Olympics day with little buddies

Today it was olympics day. I was representing Italy. The house leaders and school ambassadors organised all of the activities. I won in rowing/ blowing mini boats with a straw, and instead of a medal, I won a lolly! I also won in ribbons. My buddies were Sheradin and Emily. My favourite rotation was was horse riding/ giving little buddies piggy back rides.

Crayon writing

This is who I would be, and what my personality would be, if I was a crayon. 
Our inspiration was a book called "The day the crayons quit".

Glow worms

I took a deep breath and stepped into the black. I clutched on to the rope beside me as we went down the steep staircase down to the stream. We were at Sixtus Lodge for a night and we were visiting the glow worm caves with Dave, my dads friend and his wife Kate and her aunt, Noleen. I clutched onto the rope even tighter as I felt my foot slip down a really steep step. I turned my headlight on and grabbed my mums hand to stop myself from falling. I carefully stepped down and ducked my head as we entered a tunnel of fern to get to the river.
I shone my headlight down so I wouldn't trip on the stones in the river. I stepped into the stream and water flooded my sneakers. We carried on until we reached it. The Cave!!! It was in the stream so I was prepared to get wet! When we stepped in Noleen signaled to turn our torches off and look up. The sight was extraordinary. The glow worms looked exactly like stars! My jaw dropped in amazement. We kept on moving and when we turned back we went under the waterfall! After that I was soaked head to toe! We even found some limestone! That was DEFINITELY the highlight of my holiday.
