Blogging can be educational and lots of fun but remember to be safe and never provide personal information. Watch the video created by the students to remind you how to be cyber safe!
As part of our Australian History topic we went on an excursion to Coal Creek. We saw olden day soap, toys, underpants made from flour bags, hard boiled lollies. We went to the general store, an old school room, an old train, a small chapel, gold miners house, the magistrate and the doctor’s and chemist house.
All the seniors (grade 5/6) attempted to dress up like a school in the olden days. We learned about arithmetic (aka maths); games they played (skipping, marbles); the many strict rules (like girls can’t play with boys); fancy writing and calling teachers mam and sir.
