Here Fishy Fishy!

imageSplish, splash, splosh!

As part of our camp last week 4A took part in an Estuary Discovery session with education officers from Ecologic.

We were able to use all our prior knowledge about estuaries to appreciate the estuary ecosystem at Airey’s Inlet. We learnt how to use the handheld nets and also the larger nets to catch the little fish. We were very careful when handling them to make sure they all survived the process.

It was lots of fun and we got a bit wet (some people got very wet!)

Splitpoint Lighthouse

Have you ever, ever felt like this?

Strange things happen when you’re going round the twist!

Last week we visited Splitpoint Lighthouse which features in Paul Jennings’ stories, “Round The Twist”.

How did you feel climbing all those stairs?

How would you describe how it felt to be at the top, looking down to the ground and out to sea?

The Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre

 

Last week, whilst on camp, we visited the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre in Queenscliff. We had a great time with Anne, who taught us about the ecosystem of rock pools, exoskeletons and the threats that exist to endangered species such as leatherback turtles.

What did you learn at the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre?

What did you most enjoy looking at, or even touching, at the Centre?

 

Happy Campers!

Last week the Year 4s went on camp! Our first stop was Queenscliff where we went beach combing. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and it was so much fun to spend time all together in the sunshine!
