In 5W we made Tiny Houses. First we designed a rough draft of our tiny house. After we had finished our draft Mrs Worthington gave us two walls, a roof and a base. We had to colour them in first and then Mrs Worthington gave us a spec sheet to do the perimeter and area measurements from our tiny house. Next we cut the tiny houses out and built them. It took us a very long time but it was worth it because they look amazing!!!!

On the 19th of October we had the SEDA football clinic. It was a fun and there were blood pumping activities. We played golden child but football style and we played tiggy but with a twist, we were with partners. We also did a obstacle course. We had to hop scotch through the hoola hoops then hit the tackling bag and then we bumped into a smaller tackling bag and then the lady hand balled the ball to us. We hand balled it back then we had to jump over 3 hurdles then back to the end of the line .
After that we had to get split into two groups. One group had to run up and back the cricket pitch and the other group had to go and make a circle, then one person had to stand in the middle and go around hand balling the ball around the circle. A guy then blew the whistle and he told us it was the end and we will see you next week.

Tick tick it had just hit 9 o’clock, and we were all boarding the bus to go to Sovereign Hill. We were all very excited! The bus drive wasn’t too long but it felt like ages but it was only 1 hour and a half. When we arrived we had lunch on the oval. After that we went into our rooms and unpacked.
Not long after we went in to the lovely Sovereign Hill and went exploring.
That night we had chicken schnitzel; it was outstanding. For dessert we had chocolate brownies that tasted amazing the melted in our mouths. Around 15 minutes after dinner we went to two plays. One was about 1800s and the other one was about Robin Hood and Little Red Riding Hood. It was really funny. (Lachlan & Sienna)
Some of the activities we did were gold panning(my fav), gold pour, two gold mine tours and candy making. They were so fun. When we went shopping on the last day I bought a heart shaped candle for my mum umbrella lollipops for my sibling, raspberry drops to share, caramel fudge for me and dad and some red licorice to share. Overall I had a great camp. (Addi)

My team sat their nervously… thinking what was going to happen? As we hopped off the bus we got straight into our first ever Kick Ball game. The opponents were really nice and they were also nervous. As we got into the game everyone was laughing and having fun after that, we even mixed up the teams! It was a day everyone could remember.
