Warwick sale yards

My grandma and grandpa have lots of sheep. We went to Warwick sale yards and sold some sheep to some local butchers. We helped get the sheep on the weigher.
They weighed 55 kg each.
We had to use our math skills to figure it out.
Did you know?
That the butchers will only get about 20kg  of meat from 1 sheep.

Cooking - my maths lesson today

I learnt some fractions today in cooking class. We made a special chocolate cake just for me. Its gluten free as I have found out that I am gluten intollerant.
 The fractions I learnt were 2\3, 1/2 and 1/4.
We had to measure things and see what was the same.

I loved it it was AWESOME. The cake was yummy too.

History.. The First People in Australua

The aboriginal people were the first peoples to discover Australia. They arrived by a land bridge.

There are lots of tribes of Aboriginal People. They all speak different languages. They traded amongst each other.

They lived in Australia for thousands of years before Captain Cook arrived.

Mistletoe -geography- the environment

I am learning about different environments and settings for geography.

Mistletoe has a sticky seed.
It grows on all trees around the world.
We found it at my grandmas place in her gets there when the bird eats it and it poos on the tree and the seed grows into mistletoe and once again it happens. It sucks all the water out of the tree.

Did you know that druids used it for potions?

At Christmas time, people still put up mistletoe for kissing...

Crystal castle

This rose quartz is in the meditation circle.
I felt relaxed when I sat in the grass with all crystals around me.
 I saw a labyrinth.
A labyrinth is a  meditation maze.
I love being in the middle of lots of crystals around me.
I wish I had one of those big crystals. They were huge!!

Environment study -the seaside


In the mangroves all sorts of things go on. Either the crab eats the mangroves
and their poo turns it into mud. 
guess what? you can pick off a leaf and lick the back of it and it tastes like salt.

It's because all the salt in the mud comes through the mangrove and into the leaves. 

Mangroves have snorkels. This is their roots and they use them to breath.
