Term 3 Holiday Recount

In the holidays I didn’t really do anything exciting but in the first week I had some visitors from Burma and Melbourne, they had to stay in my house because they had nowhere else to stay, there was two families and a singer, the families were both relatives of mine, one family had a father and a daughter, the daughter’s name was Esther and I played with her, the second family was a really, really close relative of mine, their names were Simon the son and Mimi the mother of Simon.

On the second week Monday Esther, the father of Esther, Mimi and Simon had to go home but the singer stayed her name was Far Men Par, she was one of Burma’s most talented singers and sometimes in the car we would listen to her songs, I also worked on my Ancient Egypt project and finished with an animation.

On the third week Far Men Par had to go home, but at Friday I went to St Kilda playground with Kiziah (my sister), Keren (my other sister Kiziah’s twin) , Rebecca (their friend) and my Dad John, I invited Emily, Grace(my friend) and Jemimah(My other friend) to come with me but they were busy with their plans and Emily was still sick. After we went to St Kilda we bought ice-cream and then went home.

On the fourth week Emily came over at my house and we watched television, then Robin the cutest baby in our church(also my cousin) came over too, so Emily and I played with him, soon after Emily had to go home because it was nearly time for our night time church, when we arrived at the church I quickly ran to one of the small buildings next to the church because we had to rehearse a dance for a event called Sunday School Day in our church which celebrate all the children learning in Sunday school.

After all those weeks I didn’t do anything but watch my laptop ,eat go on my trampoline and sleep.

Excursion Reflection

On the 25 of May, we went on the bus, we were split in two groups.

I was in Mrs. Feher’s group, we were going to the Museum, we traveled on the bus and it took a long time, I read a book on the bus. Before we got on bus, Nhi and Emily (My friends) Started Fighting, on the bus they didn’t talk to each other. Nhi and I sat next to each other because Emily sat with her buddy Sierra, I started talking to Emily then Nhi and Emily slowly forgave each other.

We FINALLY arrived at the museum we went and exhibit showing some animals, I saw a boar, a deer and  a WOLF! Fact: A Wolf is my FAVORITE animal.

Then we went to put our bags away. After that we went to the aboriginal section, I saw cake, Honey and other food, the cake was small and burnt. I wonder what would the cake taste like! I tried to catch up with Emily and Nhi but then I saw a thing called ‘stories in string’ they were Stories made of string I didn’t understand at first but then I gave up.

We saw little videos on the walls, we even went on the second floor there were lots of stuff there, I saw some toys I forgot what they were called, Then I found a some boomerangs! We watched a video where someone threw a boomerang, it was so cool.

We got our bags back and left the museum, we started walking to the botanical gardens FACT: in 2RN my old class we went on a excursion the botanical gardens. We ate our lunch there and played, after we traveled along the road to get to the bus.

I sat next to Nhi on the ride to school. When we arrived the bell rang because it was the end of Lunch time
