Today we explored Spelling City. You can type in words that you are not sure how to spell and then you can learn them, play games with them and then be tested on them. I didn't really like it but if it sounds interesting to you this is the link: Spelling City. It was good in the way that it tought you how to spell the words you were having trouble with but thwen you click play game it uses different words??? Then in test you click 'Hear' and it is meant to sound out the word so you can type them correctly, but it didn't work. I dont think i would use it again. I dont really recommend it to anyone unless they want to waste their time trying to work out how to use it? I dont really think it is fun, it could be improved!!! (Spelling City if you are reading this then maybe take some of my criticisimes into consideration! Then maybe i would recommend it to other students to use)
Over the Easter holidays my mum, dad and my brother went to Hamilton island on the Queensland coast.
It was so sunny and nice there!! I loved driving a golf buggie around (they dont use cars there, they use golf buggies!).
We went on a yacht to Whitehaven beach with 13 other people including 2 crew members. First we went to Chalkies beach which has more Coral and fish than whitehaven. We anchored the yacht about 20 metres out to the shore. We had to wear these awful stinger suits becuase of the irukanji jellyfish. The suits cover all of your body except your face. We then jumped of the yacht into the water and snorkelled around looking at the fish and the coral. I got really scared becuase one of the crew members threw some meat into the water next to me and my mum. All the fish swarmed over us, it was so scary!! Then we got back onto the yacht and had a buffet lunch!! After that we sailed over to Whitehaven beach. We went swimming and walking and played beach cricket. After about 2 hours on the beach we sailed the 2 hour journey back to the Marina at hamilton island.
We also went on a big catamaran to the Great Barrier reef. It took 2 hours to get there. There was a huge floating pontoon there where we 'parked' the boat. Then we snorkelled for an hour over the reef and saw all the beautiful coral and fish. Then we went back to the pontoon and had a fully catered buffet lunch!!! YUM!!
Then we went to the 'underwater viewing chamber'. That was really good. Then we went on the semi-sub (semi-submersible. Its like a subramine but it doesn't go all the way under the water. It has glass walls that you look out at.).
Hamilton Island was the best fun ever. Can't wait to go back. !!!!
Year 8 Discovery Camp
My Camp Journal:
I arrived at the train station at 8:30, got my name marked on the roll and found my friends. At approx. 9:00am we caught the train to Melbourne Central station. We walked to our 'hotel' (Melbourne Discovery)and went to the 'lounge room' where the manager was there to tell us the rules of the place. then we found out our cabins and went and settled in. In my room was:
Miranda, Evie, Nikki, Indya, Kara, Michelle, Rachel, Carlie, Aleisha, Jess, Chanel, Julia, Renee, Phillipa, Lauren, Millie and Me.
Then we went on the City Circle tram to the Fitzroy Gardens. We had to answer questions in our booklets. Then we had lunch there and walked to the Immigration museum. That was pretty boring becuase it was all about Chinese masks. Then we walked to the Melbourne Museum which was much better.
Then we walked back to the hotel to get ready to go out for dinner. We went to the Universal pizza cafe on Lygon street. The food was ok but it didn't really fill me up because there wasn't enough of it.
Then we walked back and went to sleep. ZZZZZZZ...........
We woke up and got ready, then we walked to a cafe around the corner for breakfast. After breakfast our first activity was the Quuen Victoria Markets. That was really fun, there were alot of great shops there.
After the market we went to St Francis church for a mass. That was good but i didn't really know what to say or do.
After St Francis we went to Collins St and to the Australia on Collins shopping centre for lunch.
After lunch we did the activity called "Discovering Melbourne by Tram". We had to get on the tram and look around and see what there was and answer questions.
Then we got on a train and went home.
We went to the Block and Royal arcades and shopped 'til we dropped! Then we went to Collins Place for lunch. That was really nice. The last activity we went to was the Docklands Park. That was one of the funnest things on the whole camp!
Then we caught the tram to Southern Cross station to find that our train was cancelled and we had to wait for the next one which was 1 hour later UHHH! When we finally caught the train is was so packed the we had to stand the whole way and we were standing so close to each other that we could hear each others heart beat.
We had to go to school and did a presentation with the photos from camp.
I really enjoyed camp but after Thursday I was glad that it was over!!!!
