Max, Elise, Elizabeth and Emelia

On Monday the 1st of September. We went to Professor Math in the gym. He was really, really, really, really, really funny and he was a good juggler too. It was not a show because there was no one to help him. We  played  lots of games called Magnet Spider game, Cube Stack,  Marble Race, Flick the Marble, Penguins, and Hit the Target. Some of  them had a Super Challenge and they get a red cap and  a yellow vest. And the most important rule of all was the too “stay”.  My  group was Bella, Lizzy and Emelia.

On the other swimming lessons I was in  blue group. I learnt to  dive, doggy paddle, torpedo, do bubbles and  jump onto the noodle.We practised counting our toes while blowing bubbles. My friends were there too. We jumped off the diving boards. I jumped into the noodle and swam  to the edge of the pool. I felt extremely excited!

Letter from Canada Part 4 – Animals

Emelia, Rad, Tyler, Elise and Chelsi

We have lots of wild animals. We see lots of raccoons and squirrels and chipmunks. We also have deer and we watch for warning signs that they might be around because we don’t want anyone to hit them with a car! There are some wild bears too but we don’t see them very often in southern Ontario. Here is a picture of a raccoon. They are nocturnal, so if you see them in the daytime that probably means there is something wrong with them!
What kind of animals do you have? Do you see kangaroos in the wild?

We often see kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and wombats in the wild. In some areas we have to very careful while driving because they jump out onto the road in front of the cars.

In Australia we have kangaroos, koalas, wombats, cockatoos, platypus, emus, turtles, lizards and echidnas. Our birds are kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets, magpies, budgies, fire-tail finches and lyre birds. (by Elise and Chelsi)

We don’t have any poisonous snakes or spiders. But one of us heard that there are some in
Australia! Is that true?

Yes it is true. We have tiger snakes, red-bellied black snakes and brown snakes in Victoria. We are always careful in the summer months in the long grass so that we don’t step on one. We don’t see them very often. (Tyler)

We have poisonous spiders like the Red-back spider, Funnel Web spider, White-tail spider, and Black Widow spider. (by Emelia)
