The Gold coast

I am now on the Gold Coast near Brisbane . I had to get a plane from Sydney to Brisbane but it was just an hour !

Today we went to the rainforest and went for a walk.Mrs Hirons says it was very different to forest schools. It was very high up and we went for a tree top walk.

Jack went up a special ladder that takes you even higher !!!

We saw a snake and a kangaroo. Ella fed the birds. They are called rosella and are a type of parrot.

 

My first national race!

Last weekend me and Daddy went to Manchester for my first national competition. On Saturday I had practice and watched the elites and on Sunday I raced. In my first moto I finished 3rd, in my second I had a big crash but in my last moto I finished 2nd which gave me enough points to make the main final which I finished 7th

 

Looking Around Sydney

We have had a busy couple of days visiting Sydney. The opera house is amazing. The bridge is so tall and is always very busy. You can have a special trip where you can walk to the top. It must be very windy up there . Sydney has lots of old and new buildings all mixed up.There is a special train that goes around the city above your head.

We then went to Bondi beach on the bus. The waves were small so there were only a few surfers. The water was so clear and blue. It felt cold when you stepped in but the board said the sea temperature was 21 degrees .

There are lots of different birds around and I will have to get a book to check what some of them are.

We then went to Manly on a ferry. We saw lots of boats on the way.

The sunsets have been very pretty.

We are off to Brisbane today to meet Mrs Hirons family. The children here have Easter holidays from school too.

Have a great holiday and I look forward to hearing what you are all up to !

Sydney

After 27 hours of travelling we have finally arrived in Australia. The aeroplane was very big . The airport in Dubai was a very funny shape. I made sure I had my seat belt on before we took off and I had a cosy sleeping bag for when I slept. The food was delicious and Mrs Hirons let me have her salad !!

We had our own mini computer and we had our own screen to watch movies. You could watch the map and see which country we were flying over and lots of information about the flight. It even had a camera on the wheels so you could watch the plane taking off and landing from under the plane.  We watched the new Bond film Skyfall and I saw the Fighting Temeraire picture you have all been learning about at school. It was a bit tricky to watch because Mr Hirons was watching Madacascar 3 . I will have to watch my animal friends on the way home.

The clouds were all shapes and sizes but the best bit was watching the clouds disappear so we could see land and see Australia for the first time.

The hotel is amazing and we are on the 23rd floor. It overlooks Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. There are some very tall buildings here.

No More Sleeps !

I am very excited to be setting off on my adventures. Mrs Hirons gave me a bath and I am all ready to go !  I think the aeroplane is going to be very big.

Visiting the HMS Victory

We had a wonderful day in Portsmouth. It was fantastic to see everything first hand that we have been thinking about in our topic.

My group knew so much and I was really proud of them.

It was also really interesting to see that there were over 300 articulated lorries on the road that day!( in joke- you had to be there) !!

Forest Schools!

I have just finished looking at the photos of some Squirrels out in the forest. It looks as if they were having a terrific time. I would love to go but sadly I haven’t had the chance.

Maybe one day I’ll disguise myself as a Squirrel and sneak onto the minibus! I bet no-one would notice!!! What do you think?

The Victory!

This week everybody will be travelling to Portsmouth on an educational visit to The HMS Victory. This is part of our creative curriculum topic on ‘The Fighting Temeraire’.

In KS2 we have been learning all about what it might have been like to have been a sailor aboard one of the ships in Nelson’s navy. Perhaps the Temeraire or the Tenacious or even the  Victory herself. So, hopefully, everyone will have a good idea about life in those times and will get the most out of the visit.

I am really looking forward to the trip! I expect there will be lots of blogs about it next week!

Is anyone else excited?

West Kennett Long Barrow

On the last day  of the holiday we went on a day out to West Kennett Long Barrow and Avebury (in Wiltshire). When we  arrived it was cold so we put on warm clothes but still had our lunch outside.

The barrow is a burial mound for important people but it is empty now. It is about 5500 years old.

And my big sister is staying for a night.

The Fighting Temeraire

Mrs Perry and I have both been watching the James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ and it was really funny because at one point 007 goes to the National Gallery and he sits right in front of the Fighting Temeraire while he is waiting to talk to another spy.

I have been to see the painting recently and it was in a different place In the gallery. I think they must have moved it for the film?
